Risto not in top 20 of star time D?


When you play the entire game it's hard to find enough stars to go around.

Joking aside, this is an astute observation. Risto's extra ~3-4 minutes per game is likely against non-star players, thus lowering his star% relative to other top pair Dmen.

Giant (and terrific) article on aging in the NHL: https://hockey-graph...skaters-part-1/

 

TLDR: More evidence offense starts to go down in players' late-20s. Interesting support for the notion that defensive play does not follow a similar trend--it stays mostly consistent for a player's career, until ~36. 

 

Warning: You probably don't want to read this while remembering Okposo is turning 29 next month and has 6 years remaining on his contract.

Is that the contract that eventually makes us bust out torches and pitchforks for GM TM?

Wow a lot to digest and what about defensemen?

We all knew the last 2 years of that deal will be monster overpayment. As long as it doesn't turn into a Moulson-ish 5 years of overpayment, we should be good. ;)

Lots of good discussion here.

Tidbits worth noting: The Concept of Kassian makes several appearances. Also, some anti-stats shade thrown at Pouliot.

The concept of Kassian lives on.
