Probably better than you thought Shot Creation : D 3 year WAR/82 : -0.18 3 year RAPM Z-Score : -1.14 Let’s just say, shot creation isn’t really Acciari’s forte. Emmanuel Perry’s WAR model finds him below replacement level, and Evolving Wild’s regularized adjusted plus-minus finds him well below average in this regard. Given that these two model’s both agree Acciari does a pretty poor job of creating shots for his team, it’s likely that is true. Acciari’s teammates have recorded 6.37 less shot attempts per hour while playing with him. Acciari ranks, by far, the worst among...

No pain, big gain for Bruins forward Noel Acciari

If you were watching Bruins’ practice on Thursday and didn’t happen to see Noel Acciari back on the ice, you would have eventually heard him.Acciari, who had been mostly skating on his own as he rehabbed from offseason sports hernia, made his presence felt early on with a booming check of young Axel Andersson along the boards. Then later in the session, he collided hard with linemate Jakub Lauko. Andersson made it through the practice but other teenager Lauko, after sitting on the bench with a trainer for a while, headed to the room. He was still being evaluated after practice.Taking out...

Captain America Shot Creation : C- 3 year WAR/82 : 0.11 3 year RAMP Z-Score : -0.98 These two models would have a hard time being anymore different. Although 0.11 WAR/82 isn’t phenomenal, for one component, it’s about average. On the other hand, the RAMP finds Miller to be in the bottom third of the league in shot creation. In reality, he is probably somewhere in the middle. Over the last three seasons, Miller’s teammates took 1.59 more shot attempts per hour without him at 5v5. That’s not that great. That’s the worst among Bruins defensemen who’ve played 1000 minutes for the...

Bruins notebook: Teenager Jakub Lauko Caps solid week with another goal against Washington

WASHIGTON — Jakub Lauko has been determined to make an impression on Bruins’ management in his time in North America, however long it lasts for this season.
