I got a good suggestion in my last post to look at the Jets individual performances compared to last year.
Here it is:
|Player||Total Points||ES pts||PP pts||EV P/60||PP P/60||Total Points||ES pts||PP pts||ES P/60||PP P/60|
Data taken from behindthenet.ca and NHL.com.
I suggest concentrating on even strength points per 60. It's probably the best indicator of a players performance.
- Evander Kane took a big jump forward this year. For background he was at 1.9 EV/60 in 09/10. His EV/60 this year lead the team by a fair margin and ranks 33rd overall in the league.
- Not much change for Burmistrov.
- Blake Wheeler put up a very similar EV/60 to last year. His increased point total is simply a product of getting on the powerplay.
- By EV/60 Antropov had a pretty solid year. His overall point totals are down due to fewer minutes and less PP time. I find it remarkable he did so well considering some of the linemates he had to work with.
- Has Stapleton finally earned a full time job? His EV numbers are very solid and he had the best PP point production on the team.
- Kyle Wellwood. Not sure what to add. For background he put up 1.3 and 1.1 EV/60 in his 2 years in Vancouver.
- Poor Eric Fehr. It's worth mentioning again that Fehr suffered from horrible Shooting percentages. His on ice shooting percentage was 6th worst in the league for forwards playing more than 30 games.
- Craig Ramsey played Chris Thorburn on the powerplay? Wow.
- Similar numbers for Buff and Enstrom over the 2 years. Enstrom's point totals dropped mostly due to less powerplay time this year - he's down over a minutes a game from last season.
- Bogosian's offense took a big leap forward this year.
- We had 3 defenseman who put up 1 EV/60 or better which is a pretty amazing stat. In the entire league they rank Buff: 7th, Bogosian: 12th, Enstrom: 32nd.
