A Lemma Research - Penalty Box and TOI - Part II

Original post.   Part I   After completing the first part of the lemma research - penalty box - the second part was shorter, easier, but just as useful. I decided to find out the share of time teams spend on average while at even strength, on power play/shorthanded and with empty net. Then given this number, and the number of goals scored in each such situation, I was able to calculate the frequency of EVG/PPG/SHG/ENG or the reverse of it which I called the difficult of such g

A Lemma Research - Penalty Box and TOI

Original post   Nothing derails from the regular blogging like a research that you've been so eager to start, but were putting off to finish simpler and more materialistic stuff, but then you couldn't hold it off any longer.But then, I realized that in order to do that research I need to perform a lemma research. Just like its mathematical namesake, a lemma research is one that is done for the sake of a bigger one, yet producing a useful result by itself.So I noticed that I needed the

THE INSTIGATOR - Burrows is a Coward!

PODCAST - THE INSTIGATOR - Episode 8   Alex Burrows of the Ottawa Senators jumped New Jersey Devils star forward Taylor Hall after Hall laid Burrows out with a legal check. While on top of Hall, Burrows proceeded to knee Hall in the head multiple times. It is another black eye on the league, and I am not sure why the league or its players put up with cowards like Burrows.

A suggestion for the All-Star Game

Original post.   While the series "Website - A Page A Day" is being delayed by all kinds of things, here comes a short post on a different topic. Last year, in my opinion, the accuracy shooting competition which included shooting the pack from the goal line into a small hole was, in my opinion a total failure. Mike Smith's spectacular score across the rink did the injustice and provided a false impression this skill contest was any good. Otherwise, the competition was not exciting t
