It's not who you might think...
I want to thank BeerLeagueHero for inviting me to write about hockey and statistics; one topic that I am fanatical about and the other leaves me awake at night until 3 A.M. I’ll let the reader figure out which descriptor fits with which topic. But to be honest, sometimes both descriptions fit both! Before I confuse everyone further, including myself, let me get back on track.
Since the spring, I have been toying with the idea of using advanced stats to help decide the more ambiguous NHL player awards; the Selke for best defensive forward and the Norris, for best defenseman.
