Never said to not use both that's why they have scouts that watch the games and also record numbers. At the end of the day numbers don't lie and are a very accurate way to measure a player.
 
I use them religiously in Baseball to determine how good a pitcher or batter is and believe me they are over 90% accurate in how good a player is. Hockey is getting into analytics more and more, all the front office for every team use them.



I'm not saying they're not good or useful. I'm saying that telling someone that "stats overrule their opinion" may not always be accurate and you should rely on both. As the season wore on, we got worse defensively. I think the stats if broken down by month would probably show that and as an average we may have been a top 10 defensive team. But we weren't a top ten defensive team all year last year. We went from really good to pretty bad, so a season long average doesn't tell the whole story. That's all I'm saying.

The thing with statistics is that they can be easily skewed by several terrible (or very good) performances.

The thing with the eyeball test is that it can be easily skewed by several terrible (or very good) performances.

To get a fairly accurate depiction of the truth, you should consider both. I'm not positive why that's so hard to understand.

I'm hoping that is an experiment we will see.
 
PP #1 Hank, Pav, Abby Kronner, Green
PP #2 Nyquist, Richards, Jurco, Dekeyser, Pulkkinen.
 
 
 
Nice!


Not a chance Jurco or Pulkkinen are on the PP over Tatar, much less both.

Its hard for a player like him to try and figure out his scoring touch when he is delegated to 4th line minutes...he only average just over 9 minutes a game in those 34 games, and if he takes 15-20 shifts a game, that's about :30 a shift average. No way he gets that little under Blashill, unless he fails to produce with more icetime...


How do you feel about Jurco?

some have already turned on him...the guy have 5 goals in his short stay with Detroit and minimal usage by Babcock. Give him quality 3rd line minutes and PP time? I believe he will be a hot one. Calder?


Calder? Seriously? He's a small, not strong, one dimensional player who struggled mightily last year and whose game has a good chance of not translating to the NHL. And you want to talk about the Calder? No chance. Have you heard of Connor McDavid? Just wondering.

Not to mention, he's not even eligible for the Calder.
