OGVT

So I got bored and decided what is one way that I could make my life fun for an hr or so.  So I decided to try to hand calculate a stat that is famous on PP (In retrospect I probably should've just contacted him and asked, he's apparently really cool and forthcoming with the #s).  Anyhow, I was going to do GVT, or an attempt to look at a player's value on the ice.  There are a few shortcomings for instance it's heavily team dependent, that could also be seen as a relative strength.  The method basically centers the variables by team.  Teams that score a lot of goals are given no more weight than teams that don't score any.  In fact, it's better to be a guy who scores a lot on a low scoring team than it is to be a guy who scores a lot on a high scoring team.

 

Anyhow, I did the Blackhawks OGVT, if you want more info check out the below link... #s after the jump

Who would've thought that Brent Seabrook would've been better on Offense than Duncan Keith?  Contract year much?  Other than that there are no other huge surprises.  Bryan Bickell surprised me a little bit and deserves to be on the top line.  If you were to make your top lines via just OGVT (there's also a DGVT as well)

Kane/ Toews/Sharp

Bickell/Bolland/Hossa

Brouwer/Kopecky/Stalberg


This kinda screws Michael Frolik, as I didn't want to calculate his contribution to the Panthers.  But He'd probably be up there on that 3rd line with Brouwer and Kopecky.   Anyhow, i'll probably do DGVT
