Japers rink had an interesting post about putting up Niklas Backstrom as a Selke finalist by comparing his numbers with last years top five. I thought these were interesting stats, and I would like to see some other canucks, particularly Burrows and Hank fit in there. Anyone know where to find these stats? I'm not a real stats guy so have no clue past nhl.com, which of course doesn't show most of these. After the jump is the chart Japers Rink had.
Edit* never mind, found them. Added Burrows and Henrik Sedin, just outta curiosity...
|Alex Burrows 32 2.60 2.18 0.006 3.97 1.696 2.33|
|Henrik Sedin 30 2.60 2.23 -0.023 2.60 0.537 0.71|
Ok so what's all that mean? I look at these and it seems to me both Burrows and Hank could fit into this group, but i'm not so sure what the significance of say QC is... for example why is burrows' at 5 on 5 1/10th of the 6 guys above him, and why is Henriks' in the negatives? Wouldn't those two, being on the top line, have bigger numbers of quality of competition? What does that stat even mean?
