I posted this in a thread but thought I should put it here for anyone interested. If you actually click and read I'm guesssing it will interest you ... umm, because it's interesting.
The links are to TSN's Scott Cullen's articles on the Sloan Sports Analytics Conference, and our own GM Bowman was at a panel on using new stats for hockey player evaluation.
Here’s the link to the piece on hockey, which includes additional links to new kinds of metrics for a variety of evaluations (this one includes the Bowman stuff).
And here's Cullen’s previous piece, too, where he describes the conference and the issues discussed there at length.
Seriously: good stuff.
