Of course they’ve helped. Since returning from injury, Rossi has helped the PP more?
85, 83, to 73 for Niagara. I like the team goal differential stat too. Niagara down 10 & London up 2 both with a game in hand ... all three are obviously dominant teams.
Regarding Power Plays, to me the important stat is number of Power Play goals. A team like Kitchener can have a good PP% but they don’t get many power plays. They are first in % but 6th in number of goals because they don’t draw a lot of penalties. Stronger teams that play an up tempo game tend to draw more penalties.
Niagara has drawn the most penalties so it is no surprise they lead the league in Power Play goals. To me they are the most dangerous Power Play team. They draw a lot of penalties and convert at a high rate. That is nasty.
Ottawa is 9th in Power Play opportunities, 9th in PP% and 7th in Power Play goals. They need to draw more penalties. They are an up tempo team with fast transitions. Of course, there is the possibility they are too fast and that is why they Do so well 5 on 5? London is in the same boat.
The question then becomes whether a team like Niagara will score as well in the playoffs? The deeper the playoffs get, the more rope the officials give the teams. Maybe teams like London and Ottawa will benefit?
DiPietro to Vancouver emergency or is this fake?
Excellent post, Niagara’s Numbers are somewhat inflated and when they are up 10-0 they throw out the top PP line to run it up.
OTT and LK bennifit from the 4 on 4 play.
DiPietro called up to Canucks' on "emergency basis" due to Demko "tweaking something" in warmup. Canucks play Tuesday in Washington. Once Demko deemed healthy, DiPietro immediately returned to Ottawa.
When did this happen
Small sample size, as OMG warns, but curiously the 67's 16th place PK (161/209 for 77%) has actually got marginally worse. In 11 post-deadline games, the 67's are 46/60 for 75.4%.
One might assume that the additions of Maksimovich and Chiodo (as well as DiPietro), all of whom are PK contributors, would have had a similar effect as on the PP.
I think the concerning number there is the number of opportunities we've given up. 60 opportunities over 11 games is far too many.
How long can he stay in Vancouver?
I believe it is five total games per season but only if it isn’t a hinderance to their Junior club. Define the hinderance? Dunno. Some say more than one junior game missed is a problem but I would think with Andree in net, the only issue is the third game in three days this weekend.
Demko is out about a week. Does this mean Dipietro is gone for that long?
Watching Andree the other weekend against the Generals got me thinking, man did you guys even need Dipietro?
Really bodes well going forward, I didn’t realize how good he is and why some of you suggested you could go with him. He’17 or 18?ya
He's a 2000. Turns 19 in June
Well you guys are very set for next year then. Is he drafted?
Week 15 Power Rankings: Ottawa, London finish 3-0. - The OHL Collective
I think for next year maybe do a rankings like the NHL Super 16. I.e. make the ranking based off of the whole season of play instead of a week by week segment. It would have more value. In a single week everyone plays different teams and the sample size of only 2/3 games each isn't really that meaningful.
Yeah. The writer wanted to try something new and different.
We are going to revisit it next season and maybe see if we can find a new better way that is different from the others. But ill pass the message on. He may even want to do it your way!
Personally, I like a yearly but weighted more heavily on recent play. If there were a formula that took into account results from the previous four weeks and heavily weighted that more than the weeks previous it would give a better indication of the teams actual current power. It spreads the sample size from one week to one month and also incorporates previous success or failure to a lessor degree.
