Analytics also provides key utilization information that can show whether or not a player was used effectively. Coaching, strategy, chemistry, practice, and matchups are just a few of the things that might not show up, but they can provide insight that allows you to dig deeper and discover problems that may or may not have solutions.

Great write up.
I stand by what I said on Twitter. Last night closed the book of failures not only since Sid Bream, but since our 1979 World Series win. It created a generational divide that now will allow these new Pirates to forge their own narrative.
After the ball drop, the fans seemed to lose their ability to sync up...I hope that changes. It reminded me SO much of the Tomahawk Chop playoff games and how much that must have gotten to the Pirates back in the day. It couldn't have been more obvious that it was working.

Sounds like throwing the baby out with the bathwater.
If we are that concerned about signing Letang, there would be no reason to trade away his heir apparent. Rossi seems to be doing his part in distracting the media from the real trade bait...whatever that may be.
If I had to guess, we're still in the market for a big power forward that can help on the penalty kill.

Tangradi has earned his spot to replace Paul Martin as everyone's MHP (Most Hated Penguin).
Brah needs to stop acting like he's the chosen one and start trying to earn his spot on the roster. I'm going to be mucho disappoint if a dude with that kind of size and style (from his WBS time) squanders it the way he keeps doing.
If he keeps this shit up, we'll be trading him to Yeo for Erik Christensen who I believe isn't even on their team right now.

I love Mario and the Pens upper management; But I still am pissed at the NHL. Leaves me in a weird place.
I'm donating the money I would have spent on tickets and gear to the Mario Lemieux Foundation. Then I'm photographing the cancelled check and mailing it to the NHL with a note saying "My 12-13 NHL Fund"

Alexander Ovechkin's talent as an athlete is only surpassed by his ability to work hard on and off the ice in a commitment to lead through example.

@not_Yanni @KingOfNoPants Clearly the academic discipline of BEING AWESOME.
Thanks Stephen S. When I type, I sound like Archer now.
@KingOfNoPants You need a giant red stamp for this sort of job.
@dvo Wear on days there is no game, laugh in face when they think there is because they are not real fans.
I'm wearing a pair of Volcom jeans. Since they went public and shipped their shit off to China, the quality is horrible. Every pair, the button on the fly pops off. And not JUST because I've gained some weight.
and I would punch a Flyers fan in the throat. Just call it preemptive strike.
Miss you guys.
Looks like the Predators found the "Establish a Trade Route" feature in Civ V.

The Kostitsyn trade would be more interesting if everyone had to type his name out without looking at it.
@AngryPanda Top Gear UK did a great thing on NASCAR a few weeks back. It was actually interesting.
@shooter Isn't Danica racing in that? Man, it'll be awesome to see her Kournikova in a whole new league!
@FlyinPenguin all I see is West Side Story starring them and Richards/Carter.
