#2623462 Help. Seeking DRW management team contact

Posted by Canadian_Yzerman_Fan on 19 August 2015 - 08:50 AM

I don't know you, but I wish you luck. 


Have you considered reaching out to a minor league team?  They might be more inclined to hear you out than a big-league team.


Hockey analytics is still in it's infancy. It's not really a thing at the minor leagues level from what I can tell. There isn't as much dedication to tracking... Though I am having conversations with another company that isn't directly affiliated with any one team.


More and more NHL teams are coming around to seeing what they can get out of data, so I would imagine there's room for someone like me in a few places in the league right now. The only thing I ever heard relating to the Red Wings and analytics was Babcocks interest in it about a year ago. So I may be going up the wrong tree here, but it's my favourite tree.

I guess I just don't understand asking complete strangers to use their connections to get you an interview. You could be some sort of lunatic. You want in, go knock on their door. If they don't open, you didn't knock right.


This place is a community and I know there are a lot of good people here.

I am a part of many communities, and I try to help people within them whenever I can. In my experience others try to do the same. It's nice.


If someone reads my original post and thinks I'm nuts... Then I guess they won't help me. I did my best to be honest and sincere.

I for one am thoroughly impressed by what Steve Yzerman has done over the past couple of hours...

- Mezsaroz contract successfully dumped for a 2nd rounder
- St Louis extended at fair cap hit (5ish)
- Dan Ellis - a great candidate to be a franchise goalie

I can't wait to see what else he does. The roster still has a lot of openings.

I agree. This guy has been invisible. If only he'd score 3-4 goals within a 5 minute span. :yowza: :siren: :siren: :siren: :siren: :siren: :siren:

I'm wondering what people around here think of the Avs nowadays.

The rivalry is very dead and the only guys they have remaining from it are Foote (will possibly retire after this season) and Hejduk (who wasn't a big part of the rivalry anyway).

I used to loathe the Avs pretty hard, but I can't help but find this rookie loaded team to be exciting and fun to watch. Granted they still have a lot to prove (especially on defense), but they also have a lot of room to grow into being a powerhouse within a couple years. I'm glad the goon squad of the 90's is gone, because I think it would be a real shame to hate a team this good. Coincidentally, I think Matt Duchene may end up being one of my favorite non-Red Wings in the league. I can't wait to see what this kid can do with a little more size and experience, because he looks unstoppable on most nights as it is right now.

So... are average Wings fans Avs haters for life as a result of one of the greatest NHL rivalries, or can a roster full of new faces and a different style help you ignore the jersey they wear? I can't be the only one enjoying watching these guys play.
