NHL Hits/Minute Played

I'm bored at work and came across this. I thought it was a very interesting read. Mike Rupp was higher for hits/minute played than Ryan Callahan and Brian Boyle giving the Rangers (3) players in this category from last year on the team this season.

I found it interesting Prust and Dubinsky weren't on there.

For such an aggressive, in your face team, one would think they would have 5-6 players on this list.

Rupp @ 30 with 14.08 hits/60 minutes

Callahan @ 33 with 13.93 hits/60 minutes

Boyle @ 43 with 12.88 hits/60


Eminger was 16th for all defensemen with hits/60 minutes......

Interesting and i think it holds some truth - but as always i must bring up the fact that real time stats, such as hits - are extremely subjective in the statisticians eye, each building seems to have its own set of rules regarding what should and should not be recorded as a hit.

For example:

Hit total for the last three season comparison between the NYR and the Buffalo Sabres:

2010-11 - NYR - Rank = 1st - 2,333 Hits BUF - Rank = 30th - 1,505
2009-10 - NYR - Rank = 2nd - 2,330 Hits BUF - Rank = 30th - 1,388
2008-09 - NYR - Rank = 1st - 2,312 Hits BUF - Rank = 26th - 1,458

So over three years:

NYR = 6,975
BUF = 4,351

So you're telling me that the Rangers are 2,624 hits more physical then the Sabres over a three year period? These stats are flawed, and Pittsburgh has a fairly liberal hit recording history as well. Theres only so much stock you can put in these types of stats.

Obviously need to take it with a grain of salt but I thought it was interesting for the off-season to open a discussion.

Rupp is a very physical player. That fits.

If you really want to make that case you need to look at hits of opposing teams in that building vs. their hits out of that building and draw a correlation there. It really could just be the Rangers hit a hell of a lot more. It's only 8 more hits a game.

These stats make perfect sense. Especially per player. Rupp plays 10 min to Cally's 20 min. Rupp is gonna make good use of his precious minutes and hit everyone in sight.

When Hollweg was here, his hits per minute were through the roof. He was right up there with the league leaders in hits,... yet only averaged 6 minutes a game!

Cally was up with the league leaders, which you would expect with his 19, 20 minutes per.

I used to edit rosters in EA Sports NHL 04. And to make the players realistic, it was always "per minutes" when using stats to adjust their attributes.
