On: Why NHL teams should never play a tired goalie

You should never, ever, ever, ever, play the tired goaltender.*

WOWY is Worthless: Part 5

+

WOWY is worthless. It's things we know from Corsi plus a big dose of statistical noise. In Part 5, I show that WOWY doesn't correlate from year to year.

The Second Coming of Brett Hull?

5

Tarasenko is awesome. But is he "Brett Hull" awesome?

#PGHAnalytics Conference

+

I'm hanging out at the Pittsburgh Hockey Analytics conference today. If you want to up your #fancystats game you can follow along using this link.

A quick look at the power play

+

After last season, many Blues fans' principal concern going into 2014-2015 season was the power play. So let's take a look at how it's going at the one tenth of a season mark.

Wednesday Links - One Good Way To Ruin Your Teeth

2

There were ten games and some of our least favorites lost in kinda hilarious fashion (LOL Red Wings, LOL Avs), but you gotta see how this one woman is able to pry open the WHOLE top of a beer can...

Setting expectations for 2014-2015

+

Before the puck drops let's just get this out of the way. Steen will not repeat what he did last season. But that should not be interpreted as him having a bad season.

In today's episode, I play Galileo.

WOWY Is Worthless: Part 4

Could Jaden Schwartz jump to the KHL?

4

Probably not.

WOWY Is Worthless: Part 3

WOWY Is Worthless: Part 1

7

WOWY is pretty worthless. It's things we know from Corsi plus a big dose of statistical noise. In Part 1, I use a card shuffling model to look at the amount of randomness in WOWY.
