Friday's Dump & Chase: Byfuglien and The Jets

The Jets probably won't be very good this year. But they don't have to make us completely sick to our stomachs. Dustin Byfuglien will be throwing around his weight around and looking to use his powerful slapshot and it will be a delight to watch as always.

Move BUFF BACK

He is adamant Dustin Byfuglien will remain a forward, but perhaps Paul Maurice is selling his coaching talents a bit short. And, by extension, hurting his team. Byfuglien has a higher ceiling as a defenceman than a forward. The counter is he can do loads more damage on the blue-line. Last...

Zone Deployment Optimization: Right-shooting defensemen

Zone Deployment Optimization: Right-shooting defensemen

Placing the Jets' skaters where they perform best. Throughout the previous week we've shown the effects of zone deployment with comparing Byfuglien the forward vs the defender. We continue this in depth study, now turning our focus to the right side defensemen. Rudimentary evidence suggests that coaches may overvalue handedness when constructing defensive pairs; however, the analysis on defenders will still be split between left-handed and right-handed. The Jets have three right-handed defensemen with NHL experience under contract. In descending 5v5 TOI per a game last season, they are:...

Wilderness Walk: Wasted Opportunity Edition

Last night's game against the Jets was meaningless. It didn't have to be, but playing time decisions rendered it so. The Minnesota Wild won last night's game 4-3. It did not matter. This game wasn't ever going to be meaningful, and with any stakes whatsoever. It was pre-season, so the game doesn't count in any standings. Thomas Vanek was out for the Minnesota Wild. Dustin Byfuglien, Evander Kane, and Jacob Trouba were absent from last night's contest. Terrible Ondrej Pavelec was in net, meaning that scoring 4 goals was basically like scoring two against a normal goalie. The Jets recognized...
