    Good news on Reimer.

    I'm curious what the injury is that it could look so serious but be so minor.

    Orr is horrible defensively. I don't like fixed/staged (in terms of how unpassionate and unreal they are) fights. Orr does hits but he gets himself out of position way too much. He also for 95% of...

    Or I disagree with it (As do other teams as a btw). I think generally getting guys good at hockey would make you a better team.

    I'd rather have a shootout/powerplay specialist who wouldn't play...

    I disagree with this to be honest. Why do I need to celebrate on a forum, I come here to discuss

    But why is this bad?

    EDIT: Also baseball is the most individual game so its much easier to create stats. But maybe its indivual because its American but at this point we're getting into American...

    It depends on the team.

    Generally I would want a shutdown line, guys who can hit, kill penalties (yes this would be nice) and generally help my team in ways my stars can't.

    Well considering you were bragging about him for the whole thread it was a reasonable assumption.

    You specifically brought him up to me no less than 3 times in this thread.

    Wait a minute,

    sample sizes oh my god.

    Your using sample sizes. You know what sample sizes are, they are math, they are stats.

    Also small sample sizes hasn't stopped you from criticizing...

    But why is that a bad thing?

    And are those soccer stats bad?

    If so why?

    You can't just say stats are an American thing and shouldn't be considered.

    You sound like a luddite who said...

    Additionally, how does this have to do with how bad Colton Orr is as a hockey play.

    If I scored in the NHL once or even 12 times in over 200 games as a foward that wouldn't make me good.

    Beyond...

    Grabovski didn't play well, he hasn't play well in a few games. His CORSI and conventional stats are bad. I achnoweldge when players I like/don't like play well or do not.

    Unlike you on Phaneuf or...

    You do realize they have advanced stats in soccer now first of all:

    Or someone who wants to have a discussion.

    I'd rather be the person who likes to read/write than the one who likes to make personal attacks .

    Your literally confusing arguments. Advanced stats don't like Colton Orr's hockey game, neitehr do conventional ones or human beings with eyes.

    Do you actually think he's a good player beyond...

    Personal attacks are the mark of someone who is wrong or too ignorant to argue his side.

    What are these variables?

    Why are they different than the variables that already exist?

    What about the other stats?



    That's unadjusted corsi.

    Generally when he had 45 assists last year he figured that out.

    You literally made that argument 2 days ago btw.

    Also this is the best part. Passing the puck gets you assists which are stats.
