Just a pointer to a stat.  Justin Bournenposted about a "new stat"  attempting to pick apart goalies from team defence.

Bourne's Blog Entry

And pointed back to a Wall Street Journal article by Jared Daimond describing it:

I like to go to the source so if your interested the originalpresentation by Michael Shucker is here (PDF):

Michael Schucker has a series of presentation about hockey analysis here:

Finally he also has a blog here:

The blog

 

I thought the stat geeks that frequent this blog might be interested. I haven't had a chance to go over the analysis so I won't say anything about it other than it looks interesting.

Cheers
