Myers glad he’s remained with Sabres

Tyler Myers had a lot on his mind early this summer. The Buffalo Sabres defenseman got married in July, with the nuptials taking up plenty of brain real estate.

A while ago I posted the top 20 players in the 2013/14 season by team and zone start adjusted Corsi rate.  This is the difference in attempted shots by a player's team and his opponents when a player is on the ice in 5 on 5 situations.  It is then adjusted for the team the player plays upon and the zone in which the player's shifts tend to begin.  This Corsi is then divided...
