A quick primer on the new NHL stats page

Posted by: | Comments (1)

In case you missed it, the NHL stats page has been upgraded to include the #fancystats that we use here on a regular basis. The NHL changed the names (finally), so now it’s easier for people to understand what exactly Corsi, Fenwick, and PDO measure. Let’s break it down:

  • Shot Attempts (SAT) – this counts all shot attempts for/against a team while a player is on the ice. This was previously called Corsi.
    • This is broken down into SAT For (SATF) and SAT Against (SATA).
  • Unblocked Shot Attempts (USAT) – this counts all unblocked shot attempts for/against a team while a player is on the ice. This was previously called Fenwick.
    • This is also broken down into USAT For (USATF) and USAT Against (USATA).
  • Shooting Ratios (SAT/20, SAT/60) – this converts the raw counts of SAT and USAT into rates per 20 minutes of TOI and per 60 minutes of TOI. This is done because players with more ice time may have higher numbers than those who see less ice time.
    • This uses the same abbreviations above, but just adds /20 or /60 to the end.

BSB FanDuel: 2/20

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off on BSB FanDuel: 2/20

Here is the info for today’s FanDuel league: Sign up for FanDuel here, the league link is here. We aren’t high rollers, it’s $2 to play.

For those unfamiliar, you are given $55,000 to construct a team of 2 LW, 2 RW, 2 C, 2 D, and 1 G. High fantasy points per game (FPG) with low cost is a good way to go, but look for streaks as well. Rotowire has a lineup optimizer, as does DangleFactory. They are good resources if this intrigues you, or you’re new to daily fantasy sports.

As always, if the league fills up before you can get in, let me know in the comments.
