    I admit I like some of their articles..I find myself there more with HIO pretty well asleep in the summer...and I view those stats like any others. I do like the usage stats and matchups,etc. I view the shots and possession stats like I view plus minus....there are so many other factors tat go into them...I still reference plus minus at times. I think wen someone see Josh Gorges they see all those heroic blocked shots...but they ignore all those pucks dumped away and chanced to advance the puck missed. The key to hockey alaytics will be decision making...this can be done through video review but the time to do it league wide would be crazy.

    The idea of finding value per dollar is and should be the most important factor in a cap era. how they determine that value? that is the magic question.....I believe the key is in determining who makes the best decisions so the general idea of possession is of value...but the curentmeans of measurement (w e are privy to anyway)...are IMO not really doing the trick.

    Nope....and he had the best lies, the best playing partner and he wouldn't let the talented center who was in the group behind him play through while he was off chasing his errant drives.His short game is good though. His average of 3.5 on par 3's was very good for someone of his caliber and he played with a lot of heart in the the playoff holes. His playing partner said he was the best partner he ever golfed with though ...helped him through some rough Patches.

    all about accessibility in the highly populated countries. That is like saying the world prefers eating rice to cheeseburgers because more people eat rice.

    In fairness those opinions and the balance on taht topic are what you like when the discussions are about hockey...but you have an issue when people dislike soccer? You too are bias....we all are....but I often hear that the same people in here will not be looking forward to The Habs vs FLA ro the HAbs vs NJ for similar reasons. People also get excited to a ton of other things...but I thought he discussion on soccer, baseball, golf was fine...there was equal amounts of Soccer is better than Baseball or Golf as there was Hockey is better than soccer. I can definitely say that of the people I know who play both...the great majority prefer hockey both to play but especially to watch. Most guys i know who played both hockey and soccer and still play mens league soccer don't watch any more of the World Cup then I do...they definitely watch way more hockey than soccer.
