His rankings.

Some really good in-depth analysis on all aspects of play effectiveness.

these are not my rankings at all, but it's interesting to see an all around analysis of a players game... instead of just scoring races and stuff.

Their PPG was very similar. Had Malkin not got injured, he would’ve been a hart nominee

I'm a big proponent of data analytics in sports. This is almost entirely useless without any write-up, methodology or anything. Top 20C based on what? *Effectiveness* means nothing, and "data scientist" or "analytics" as blanket statements are equally useless.
