Been thinking about making this thread for a while. We tend to do numbers talk in the line combo thread, but I figured it warrants its own, especially when we have a player (knock on wood) near the top of the league in scoring. So this can be a place to point out interesting numbers, advanced stats talk, and what have you. A few interesting things to start off (As of Nov. 24, 2016): As of right now, Nikita Kucherov is in sole possession of 2nd in the NHL scoring race, although Connor McDavid, 1st, looks like he's just getting warmed up. Tyler Johnson has quietly built a 5 game scoring streak. Tampa Bay has, get this, the 3rd best PP in the league at the quarter mark. ...Which is probably why we're only one win shy of the league lead (Montreal, New York with 14), despite some inconsistent play to start the year. ...And then there's Ryan Callahan.
