    Yep. I personally don't like PDO because I don't see any reason to lump save percentage in, a good or bad save percentage can be sustained based on goaltending quality and the quality of team defense. So I just look at shooting percentages, shot attempts, etc... It's also worth it to break shooting percentage into 5v5 and powerplay. I made mention last week that the 5 v 5 shooting percentage was unsustainably low, and we have had better results in the last few games.

    Fun fact - the Jackets are 4th in PP shot rate and 24th in PP goal rate. You might say that's just the way it is with a lame PP, but low shooting percentage wasn't the problem last year or the year before. The Jackets were 31st in PP shot rate in 2017-18 and 30th in 2018-19. Does that suggest that goals will come? At least to some degree, yes. They have a 7% shooting percentage on the PP right now, and no team does that over a full season. 10% could be dead last in the league.

    I know it’s been said before, but this early season schedule absolutely blows.

    Congrats to Vlad Gavrikov for his first NHL point.

    Also, Gavrikov/Savard pairing is top 10 in the league in least goals against expected stats

    And 3rd in actual goals against rate.

    I don't put a lot of stock in those stats this early, but they look like they're killing it defensively, and they have been.

    Which naturally means Torts broke them up last game against the Flyers.

    2009 Columbus Blue Jackets 7th round pick Kyle Neuber-who I had never heard about-might be the scariest player I've seen in the past decade. He's 6'4" 250 lbs. Go to the 3:50 mark of the video:



    He's the one who jumped into the visitors bench. After being punched at least 30 times by several Cyclones players on the bench, he was dumped out on the ice. He was none the worse for wear. He was grinning and cursing at the Cyclones bench and then snapped his stick into two pieces with his hands. A wild and fun scene. My respect for Scott Howson just skyrocketed.

    I have no idea what the hell Hedger is trying to say.

    That players on the team don’t think Elvis earned his way on the team, like say Bemstrom did.

    He’s insinuating based off of comments from players when asked about Elvis.

    Ok. Glad I'm not the only one trying to figure out what that meant.

    Yet on an Athletic podcast both Alison Lukan and AP both discussed this exact topic a couple of weeks ago and said that they got no sense of animosity towards him at all.

    FWIW, I only think Bemstrom is here because Jarmo is so high on him and we have no one better. Outside of the very first shot of the very first exhibition game I have not been impressed by Bemstrom in the slightest.

    Different strokes for different folks, maybe they’re not talking to the same players.

    Or he could be making it all up in his head since I've not seen any comments leading to that belief and he didn't feel the need to cite anything. The Dispatch coverage has gotten really terrible IMO.
