From Mirtle: The Flyers goaltending: Not as bad as you think (and other netminding myths) [ME: Ah, but the Kings' goaltending is worse than you think!]

There’s something about goaltending that, when it’s bad, it can hang on a franchise like an odour, weighing on fans and netminders alike. Pre-Luongo, for example, Vancouver was always pegged as a goalie graveyard (although some would argue a few of his predecessors were stiff upon arrival). In Ottawa, they seemingly haven’t had a lot…

From The Puck Stops Here: Team Corsi Numbers

Puck Stops Here (blog) calculates team Corsi numbers, and the results are interesting. Here’s what he says; my thoughts follow the quote block: Corsi Numbers are the difference between shots directed at the goal (shots on goal, missed shots and blocked shots) for and against when a player is on the ice in five on…

From Battle of California: More on Doug Wilson

Still,…
