Nerdy Stats Update

Stats via Behind the Net (link in the right margin under stats).

Seven Kings have a PTS/60 (points per 60 minutes of icetime) above 2.0. They are: Kopitar (2.66), Smyth (2.59), Stoll (2.46), Parse (2.35), Williams (2.35), Simmonds (2.24), Jones (2.10).

GFON/60 (goals-for, while player is on the ice, per 60 minutes) leaders: Schenn (5.16), Smyth (4.18), Parse (3.52), Kopitar (3.39), SOD (3.28), Doughty (3.13), Simmonds (3.04), Jones (2.93).

QUALCOMP (quality of competition) leaders (descending order, three game minimum): Jones, Williams, Frolov, Brown, Kopitar, Doughty.

Players who have been on the ice for the most goals-against: Johnson (27), Frolov (18), Brown (18), Doughty (18).

Players who have not been on the ice for a goal-against: Moller, Loktionov, Segal.

Based on that, I would say Jones and Parse don’t suck. Also, you expect JJ and Doughty to be on the ice for lots of goals against — they get the big minutes against the best players — but for Frolov and Brown to be at the top of the list (while not producing on the offensive side) is troubling.

    Wow, that is a high margin of goals-against for Johnson at 27. That’s 9 more than everybody else!

      But it makes intuitive sense, since (1) he gets huge minutes, and (2) he’s a little reckless/sloppy, as we know. He’s been playing better of late, I think (especially last night). And there have been games where he’s followed a goal-causing screw-up with a game-winning effort (the recent shoot-out…).

      Frolov, also not surprising.

      Brown, though, that’s not good.

        Brown, with his “shoot just to see what happens” approach probably relies a lot on blind luck for goal-scoring. And I don’t mean that as a criticism, because I think his willingness to shoot just to create loose pucks in front of the net is very useful, like having a point shot on the wing. But I think it quite possible that luck will inflate or deflate his scoring numbers more than most forwards.

        Wouldn’t GFON also be a function of how much ice time you’re getting?

    Ice-time affects everything (obviously a player who gets 20 minutes has more chance to get into the flow than a player who plays 5), but GFON/60 takes TOI into account by prorating a player’s production over a sixty minute time-frame. That way, the number levels the playing field in terms of sheer minutes, but not in terms of the differing effect of having 25 shifts as opposed to 3.
