Face Offs

11

Hey guys, I wrote the above article with respect to fantasy leagues but it really got me thinking about FO's in general. I've read a couple of your articles on face offs but has anybody done anything on why some teams seem to take a significant number of FO's than others? As I said in the article some teams (Philly, Was, Chi) take a ton more face offs than others (Car, NYR)... at least this season. I figured PIM's might be a factor but both NYR and Philly get a lot of PIM's, Maybe goalie tendencies? Coaching strategies? I'm kinda stumped. Has anybody seen anything written about this? Any ideas?
