Fenwick Timelines!! Many number munchers around the web will tout the value of Fenwick and Corsi when analyzing hockey. It tends to be the best long term predictor of future success and can offer a nice snap shot of just how effective a team has been.
Now before you turn off your brain and say "advanced stats are stupid", Fenwick is simply shots, posts and missed shots added together and it generally goes hand in hand with offensive zone time.
Now for your Winnipeg Jets: Thanks to some awesome work by Arctic Ice Hockey overlord Gabe Desjardins, via his hockey nerd haven www.behindthenet.ca individual game tables, so let's get at it!
Here is the Fenwick timeline for the Winnipeg Jets vs Ottawa Senators on Febuary 11th, 2013:

So, I have deduced that the Jets are pretty good at Fenwick, but not so good at winning. This game was another strong showing by the home side and probably one they should have won, but once again it was not to be. Was it as simple as Ilya Bryzgalov standing on his head? Maybe, but there could be more to the story.
The Jets were once again further ahead on in terms of Fenwick that they were the shot count. Missed shots were definitely a factor. I approve of mass shooting, but more of the mass shooting has to be on net. The numbers lead me to believe the Jets are a decent team suffering through some poor puck luck, but in a shortened season there isn’t much time to figure it out.
