They are based on past examples, given some funny names and done by math freaks and excel geniuses but I guess I'm just not advanced enough to care about stats other than goals, assists, gave is... the official ones. And even then they aren't telling the whole story a player could have a great game but still be snake bitten


And that, usually, can be shown using advance stats. That's why they're there. To tell more of the story.

If he averaged, over the last 5 years, 2 goals per gamethn yeah I'd say there would be a pretty good shot he'd score 2 goals. Unless you have a better satistical prediction model, in which case I'd love to hear it.

Because it's reasonable to assume that both those guys will play a full 82 games this season, or going forward?  I'm not skewing stats.  I'm going by their totals.  Neither of those two will ever play a full 82 games again.  So why would you go by their full season projections?


Because a per game estimate is a far better predictor of what they'll do in a single game than their recent season totals would suggest. You'd be correct if they were playing the emtire season together, but they're not.

Whatever we do for the love of all things good can we please keep Nyquist and Datsyuk off the ice together?
