1) like you say eight games is not enough of a sample size.
2) I’d be interested to look at the box scores from those specific eight games and see what the SOGs for the team as a whole were.
3) Do you know what Sonny’s offensive zone draw percentages were? My guess is Torts wouldn’t throw him out on the ice very often during defensive zone face offs.
4) sometimes that stat can be extra deceiving without looking up the numbers I feel like Sonny cared nothing about shooting percentage he’d take crazy angle shots every shift that could be good and bad I bet the shooting percentage when he was on the ice went down Rimer was s big fan of talking up how we would win the SOG battle when we were losing on the scoreboard I’m not impressed
I love the analytical numbers. So much more telling than older stats like +/- . I was always surprised by how much Saad pushed possession too because he also didn’t seem like a strong defensive player.
Thanks for the info.
