Quick Hits: The Bad Numbers Edition

In Red Wings Land

A look at Red Wings advanced stats through Feb. 8, 2021 - ClickonDetroit

As you’ll see in the case of Anthony Mantha, he has a strong FF% through 12 games played, but his PDO is trash. Why? Well, there are a lot of contributing factors here. As mentioned, PDO can show how opportunistic a player is and how fortunate bounces are for his team when he’s on the ice.

I didn’t want to use this post, but the more interesting stuff out there is all paywalled and at least this is a discussion point on how much advanced stats have evolved from the analysis presented here.

If nothing else, share what you’ve got.
