    The Carlyle Effect

    by Tyler Dellow • April 14, 2014 • Hockey • 7 Comments

    One of the biggest changes in my views as I’ve gotten deeper into looking at hockey through a number lens is my belief in the impact of coaching. I was initially a skeptic on the value of coaching. I still am, to a degree. In many cases, I think that that which we attribute...

    Dave Nonis And Analytics

    by Tyler Dellow • November 11, 2013 • Hockey • 17 Comments

    Dave Nonis appeared on a panel today that talked about hockey analytics. For reasons I’ll never understand, they never really have a coherent advocate of hockey analytics on these panels – at most, you get some sort of a nebbish character who’s intimidated by hockey people. At worst, you get a guy who knows...

    Revisiting Lubo for Ryan Whitney

    by Tyler Dellow • September 30, 2013 • Hockey • 11 Comments

    Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve introduced a couple of different metrics: SAF/100, SAA/100 and a ratio, shifts with at least 1+ SAF/shifts with at least 1+ SAA. I’m interested in using these metrics to take a look at some past decisions around the NHL, to see if they can shed any light...

    Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve introduced a couple of different metrics: SAF/100, SAA/100 and a ratio, shifts with at least 1+ SAF/shifts with at least 1+ SAA. I’m interested in using these metrics to take a look at free agent signings that didn’t pan out, to see if we can tell what...

    The Golden Ratio

    by Tyler Dellow • September 27, 2013 • Hockey • 5 Comments

    I’ve gotten a bit off track this week but last week I did some writing about SAF/100 and SAA/100, which are attempts to measure how good teams are at keeping the pressure on/stopping the bleeding once the first shot has been given up on a shift. Once you’ve started to look into multi-shot shifts,...

    New Metrics 2

    by Tyler Dellow • September 19, 2013 • Hockey • 8 Comments

    A few days ago, I wrote about a new metric that I’m playing with, Shot Attempts For/100 shifts with 1+SAF (which I call “SAF/100″), which is an attempt to measure how successful players are at turning one shot attempt into multiple shot attempts. Clever readers may have thought “I’ll bet that you could do...

    New Metrics I

    by Tyler Dellow • September 16, 2013 • Hockey • 17 Comments

    I’m playing around with some new metrics at the moment. They’re all related to the same sort of interest: pushing past Corsi% as a metric and getting into the stuff underneath it. As I’ve mentioned in a previous post, I’m calculating what I call an open play Corsi% – basically, I knock out the...
