We chatted with Sean Tierney (Charting Hockey) on Saturday’s Illegal Curve Hockey Show about analytics and how the Jets measure up so far this season.
Topic 1: Why is 5 on 5 shot share per 60 minutes such an important statistic and are you surprised that the Jets shot share isn’t higher given the level of talent they put out on the ice?
Topic 2: How surprised is he that the Jets are an average team at expected goals and how would they fix this?
Topic 3: Is he surprised at how the Jets top line (81/55/26 & 27/55/26) has performed at 5 on 5?
Topic 4: On the importance of clean zone entries.
Topic 5: Team GF% vs xGF% and why the Jets are ranked poorly.
Topic 6: Goals saved above average and Connor Hellebuyck.
You can catch the Illegal Curve Hockey Show on TSN 1290 Winnipeg every Saturday from 9 am until 12 noon and NHL This Week on Wednesday night from 7 pm until 9 pm.
