    I'm not suggesting it...I'm saying it's already happening..like I said you all may think DQ plays the best players...others disagree...we all can agree to disagree right Rhett Hott?

    I'm still lurking. I don't weigh in all that much because I don't get to see as many games as I would like and thus have less of a viewpoint to offer people here. I also find the level of discourse has plummeted since the good old days of the stupidity spouted by many other posters (mostly knuckle-dragging BC fans).

    And no, I'm not Jack Parker.

What did hurt this season was the lack of goals from the 3rd and 4th lines as their combined 19 goals was tied for second lowest in the past ten seasons. The 19 goals also accounted for just 19.6% of all goals from the forwards, third lowest in the past ten seasons (barely beating out 2014-15's 3rd/4th lines 19.4%).

    I added forward line combinations and defensive pairing to my database a number of years ago. My information is based on depth charts and/or lineups listed in online game boxes. I know some of those conflict regarding line order and I try to be consistent and use the depth charts, then the online boxes. Also powerplays, penalty kills, injuries, games misconducts and in game changes can all affect line scoring, so my stats will not be 100% accurate. Still, I believe them to be quite useful in comparing lines and defensive pairing. As I was asked about the stats for this season's third line I ran queries for stats by forward line and defensive pairing for the past ten seasons. I created a spreadsheet and uploaded it if anyone else is interested. I also added the averages and medians for all ten seasons so each season can be compared to them.

    In all seriousness...what would very telling would be a points per minutes played stat..including Power play time...that would give you a much truer picture of a players production...don't know if it's possible but I'm betting it wouldn't look very good for McAvoy or Bellows

    No one here has claimed to be an expert. We simply discuss, in a civilized manner (don't know why that's so hard for you), our opinions and observations about the team, and sometimes agree to disagree.
    YOU for some reason just HAVE to be right and won't let anyone have their opinions if they don't agree with you.

    Either chill out and have a civilized dialogue, or shut it

    Gentry has been around here and there lately. Haven't heard from Limey in at least three or four years. Maybe Limey was Parker.
