I kid, but yeah this seems to be one of those situations where really good hockey players juice each other's offensive numbers. I remember you doing work back in the day on the Heatley-Spezza-Alfie line and how they created a ridiculous amount of magic together that they were never able to replicate anywhere else with anyone else. I have a feeling JT-Marner is going to be similar.can't forget this, though:
15-16: 2.08p/60, 1.91p1/60, 8.3oish%
16-17: 1.97p/60, 1.43p1/60, 9.6oish%
17-18: 2.16p/60, 1.70p1/60, 9.7oish%
18-19: 2.77p/70, 2.25p1/60, 11.2oish%
I'm not convinced that Hyman wasn't a legit importnat piece of that line, to be honest.Yup, seems pretty mutually beneficial. Add a third top tier guy and they’d explode further. It’ll be interesting to see if Kapanen can break out into a 60+ point player if left with those two.
Looking for an explanation for 1 year spike in primary assists. Averaging multiple years is useless for that exercise.but his previous year's oish% was the lowest of his careers.
oish% is kind of why I don't love looking at year to year "progression" so much - usually it ends up being mostly oish% noise. over the course of their ELCs this usually evens out:
