I posted the top 20 players by their adjusted Corsi rate in 2011/12.  Daniel Sedin of the Vancouver Canucks leads the league with +22.5 Corsi events per 60 minutes of even strength play.  This is a four point lead over anyone else in the league.  This shows that Sedin had the largest difference between the puck possession of his team when he was on the ice when compared to when he is not on the ice.  This is clearly a sign that Daniel Sedin is a very good NHL player.  It also highlights the difference between the situations when Sedin was on the ice when compared to when he was not on the ice.  Sedin led the league in offensive zone starts in 2011/12.  This means that he was on the ice for more offensive faceoffs (minus defensive ones) than anyone else in the league.  It is easier to attempt a shot on goal and to prevent a shot on goal when you start your shifts in the offensive zone.  Continue reading "Daniel Sedin Has The Top Corsi Rate"

Could the Canucks’ Nicklas Jensen be the next Gabriel Landeskog?

Canucks' Raymond gets a rare pay cut

Mason Raymond is running out of time for excuses. The 26-year-old left winger signed a one-year deal July 9 to remain in Vancouver. He accepted a pay reduction to $2.27 million from $2.6 million after the Canucks made the unusual move of filing for arbitration against him. The club gets the reduced salary it was looking for while avoiding a nasty arbitration hearing. Raymond...

Manny Malhotra Has The Worst Adjusted Corsi Rate

Yesterday I posted the worst 20 players in 2011/12 by their adjusted Corsi rate.  The adjustment comes when players Corsi (difference in shots directed at goal for and against) when they are on the ice is compared to that of their team when they are not on the ice in five on five situations.  This gives us an idea of which players have a significantly different puck possession...

Hurricanes Sign Marc-Andre Gragnani

In what seems like an odd move, the Hurricanes decided to bring another defenseman on board for next year by signing Marc-Andre Gragnani to a one-year, two-way deal.
