Did Helmer get a no-trade or no-move in his contract?  Wasn't really paying that much attention.

 

I was actually shocked that Nashville wanted a number one defenseman coming back the other way. They have one of the deepest back ends in the league and lack offense. I thought that Weber for Hall would have been a much better deal for both Nashville and Edmonton... and even Montreal...

 

What Nashville does get in that deal is exactly what Montreal didn't want... a player with personality.  Nashville not only got a number one back... they got a guy that will put butts into seats FOR YEARS because he's a superstar. 

Compared to Subban -- Weber's a cold fish, void of personality. 

...not even bringing to light the fact that Weber is obvious decline.

This thread has taken an arguably gross turn.

Pretty sure they arent carrying charts with them

Carrying charts with them?  Like on a clipboard inside their briefcase or something? Why would they do that?  Don't they have smartphones?  ...or a tablet?  ...oh, RIIIIGGGGHHT.  Dial-up internets and everything.

Nice one

You can't simpy tell if a player is good just by looking at analytics

You also can't "simply look" at a player and tell if they are good.

Well this is going nowhere. These arguments always devolve into an all or nothing approach. Throw in a lot of misinterpretations and you got yourself a show. This forum gets worse and worse each year.

...or jokes.  Don't forget jokes.

 

Sure.  There are certainly those that take the all or nothing approach to either stats or no stats and of course there is misrepresentations/interpretations of stats, just as there are for eye-ball tests.   Using everything that you've got to analyze your players -- everything from eyeballs to spreadsheets -- and using that analysis to win is how you reach your end goal -- the Cup.
