Stats- A- Palooza

Japers Rink has been blogging up a storm regarding advanced analytics concerning the Capitals - our forwards and how they relate to others in the NHL. It notes we have the highest paid group of forwards in the league among other matters.

This work is quite thoughtful, smart, crisp and a very entertaining to read. Click here.

While I see stats from our front office all of the time, they aren't presented with the panache of these blog posts. Well done indeed. Read this and this and form your own opinions .

On another note, I think this is the off season where we would have been having to negotiate Alex Ovechkin's extension had we not signed him to a long term deal. I think he would have been an unrestricted free agent this summer had he only signed a five year deal with us. Time flies.

An another note, I shut down my Capitals and Wizards individual email accounts one year ago.
