I'm a little weirded out by promotions, too.

Agreed, Snots, but he didn't discuss politics.  Not really.

Gratz to your daughter.  And now we know you're a granpa!  Its message is not my cup of tea (not the "party"), but it's an accomplishment.

Devils win in a shootout.  Satan puts in a bid for the winter Olympics.

I'm a big fan of this article, Kevin.  It's fun to look at the shot distribution heat index alone -- although, because of my recent affiliation with SayMyName, I can't help Rorschaching (verbize the noun, man!) pr0n-scenes involving baby seals, cats that hop and cavernous navels out of them.

And these "#fancystats" are pretty cool in the way they approach abstracting performance.  There are 3 main questions that seem to get conflated a bit here on the blog: 1) Can stat systems ever become strong predictors of performance in hockey (oh, yeah, and let's define performance, too)?  2) Do the particular stat systems we are applying now (Corsi, Fenwick, for example) provide an adequate predictive toolset for performance? 3) Are these stats useful in unpacking the story of what has already happened?

I think your article contributes to #3 wonderfully by providing examples of a Corsi failure and a shot range success.  

I'm happy that you leave #1 and #2 alone and allow us to draw our own conclusions.

Minnesota showed a distinct lack of guts after those 2 arguably suspendable hits.  Corsi Intim -60%.

You don't do anything stupid when the game is 0-0.  Then wait for the right moment.

That was close to a serious neck injury.  A few more degrees of rotation and that would have been Modano-like.

Frightening and bizarre injury to Nick Foligno in the Columbus/L.A. game today.  Foligno stretchered off after running his head awkwardly into a linesman (while being checked by Jeff Carter).
