We chatted with analytics expert Sean Tierney on today’s Illegal Curve Hockey Show about the Winnipeg Jets.
Sean writes for Charting Hockey and always provides great insight into hockey analytics.
Topic 1: The Jets position in the standings and their underlying numbers.
Topic 2: The firepower the Jets have and whether they should have better results.
Topic 3: What has he seen from Connor Hellebuyck and what has he meant to this team.
Topic 4: Outperforming poor defensive play via the offensive side of the game.
Topic 5: Splitting up Mark Scheifele and Blake Wheeler and whether this was the right decision.
Topic 6: On Patrik Laine’s play.
Topic 7: Does Nikolaj Ehlers get enough credit as a play driver?
Topic 8: What do the Jets need to do to maximize the effectiveness of their D?
After the show Sean tweeted out this for Jets fans about the D:
Just chatted with the guys from @IllegalCurve on @TSN1290Radio and I referenced the strangest results.
