It’s October. That means it’s time to hyper analyze ridiculously small sample sizes and draw incredibly premature conclusions. It’s an annual tradition. So let’s look at Arizona. Coyotes have such intriguing stats: Shot Attempt Differential (Corsi): 4th in NHL (+78) Unblocked Shot Attempt Differential (Fenwick): 4th in NHL (+45) Shots Against per game: 2nd in NHL (23.3) Shots For per game: 5th in NHL (36.5) Faceoff Percentage: 5th in NHL (53.3) Goals Against per game: 4th in NHL (2.25) Looks good, right? No... Goals For per game: 31st in NHL (0.50) What in the actual ****? The performance indicators are there. The performance is not. Are they going to explode offensively soon or are we looking at a new kind of outlier? We’ve all seen terrible players with great fancy stats. Are we about to see a whole team that fits that bill?
