Lack Of Power Play Chances - Much Ado About Nothing

"Question everything' (K.Marx)

Yes, as we have recently heard and read, power plays are down in the NHL this year.

NHL Totals

Last year.................7.08 pp/game

Currently.................6.72pp/game

Since the Canucks have a top power play Canuck Media and Fans are complaining and concluding that this fact has had a big impact on the Canucks scoring this Year!

Sorry....Wrong!

Canucks

Last year....................296 pp. chances (from nhl.com)

This year.....................289 pp. chances (*projected total)

7 chances in 82 games

The difference of .approx.............1.4 goals.................. (for the season) (20%current success rate * 7)

Much ado about Nothing.

The Canucks benefited early - receiving above average pp chances.

The Canucks have received below average pp chances in the last two months, however,

Overall, the Canucks have not been impacted by the fewer calls this year

Looks like those Canuck fans and media 'blaming the refs' need to find another excuse or narrative.
