    Whether you measure a blueliner’s defensive ability by plus/minus or a more sophisticated metric, Jack Johnson hasn’t been very strong in his own end. Should the Kings expect that to change next season?

    Jaromir Jagr and Jarome Iginla could reach some impressive milestones next season, particularly in Jagr’s case. This post goes deeper to look at other all-time rankings lists, showing why Mike Modano might want to come back for another season after all.

    The Vancouver Canucks’ dominant 2010-11 season is reflected in Special Teams Plus/Minus stats, but find out how the other 29 teams fared. Following that, put on your tin foil hats and take a look at which teams enjoyed far more (or far less) power plays than penalties.

    Marc Andre Fleury, Jussi Jokinen

    A recent report pointed to Jarret Stoll’s 2010-11 season as the best single campaign in shootout history. We couldn’t help but wonder: who are the all-time leaders in shootout scoring, though? Check out this post to find out which players are the kings of the shootout.

    Dany Heatley, Joe Thornton, Devin Setoguchi

    The Wild introduced Dany Heatley and Devin Setoguchi today. There’s been a lot of debate about how much Minnesota really improved with those two moves, but they might benefit if Heatley and Setoguchi do what they’re asked to do: shoot. A lot.

  14. Stanley Cup or not, Tim Thomas is producing a special 2010-11 season and playoffs

    Jun 13, 2011, 9:00 AM EDT

    Tim Thomas

    Tim Thomas is putting together the kind of run that is drawing comparisons to the best work of Patrick Roy and Dominik Hasek. If you look at the numbers (and his highlight reel saves) it’s clear that those comparisons aren’t out of order.

    Tampa Bay Lightning v Boston Bruins - Game Five

    The first two games of the 2011 Stanley Cup finals took place in Vancouver, resulting in narrow wins for the Canucks. Could the advantages of being at home help the Bruins swing the balance in Boston? Some numbers indicate they might have a chance.

    The Canucks have been struggling with the Sharks’ power play all series long, but Game 3 brings up concerns about a gap in the two squads’ special teams units.

  19. Has Joe Thornton really ever been a ‘choker’ since he came to San Jose?

    May 22, 2011, 12:10 AM EDT

    Joe Thornton

    One of the biggest stories of the playoffs has been Joe Thornton’s supposed transformation into a true playoff performer. Yet if you look at his numbers with San Jose, the change hasn’t been as drastic as many believe.

  20. Why the Sharks should practice patience with Antti Niemi

    May 1, 2011, 5:27 AM EDT

    Antti Niemi

    Antti Niemi came into the Red Wings-Sharks series as one of San Jose’s biggest question marks. If last year’s Cup run with Chicago is any indication, the Sharks would be wise to stick with Niemi through his ups and downs.

    People point to injuries and shaky goaltending as big issues for the Flyers, but one problem that slips under the radar is their unproductive power play.

    Apr 18, 2011, 8:00 AM EDT

    Martin Hanzl, Radim Vrbata

    No one should doubt that the Detroit Red Wings are legitimate contenders for the Stanley Cup, but will a secretly shaky defense doom them against the league’s best teams?
