<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>Random2152</b></div><div>I just want to address the little things bit here:
Analytics are specifically designed to HIGHLIGHT the little things that you don't notice. That is what they are developed for. The ones I posted here are FAR from the only important ones, but they illustrate a point in an easy to use and digest manner. They are meant to show things like breaking up plays and zone exits (corsi is one form of the latter).

The Dallas Stars are one of the teams that are known to not use analytics at all, along with Ken Holland and others.

What the chart say (this year) is that Lindell took low percentage shots and scored on more than would normally be expected (the left 2 most columns). It also says that his team generally shoots the puck less when he is on the ice, meaning they have the puck less (stuck in the D zone, middle column). The defensive metrics say that the other team shoots the puck from slightly less dangerous positions than when he is off the ice (this is shot %/ high danger scoring chances, 4th column) and that the other team shoots the puck more/ has the puck more when Lindell is on the ice vs when he is off.

Going back to what Nill said, the underlying metrics say his eye test is wrong in this instance. It is the reason why the traditional DFD is going out of style, because they can be good in corners and keeping guys to the outside, the puck is always in their end of the ice vs a TWD or OFD getting the puck out of his own end.</div></div>

Not too hard to understand that they shoot less with Lindell om the ice since he starts 65% of his shifts in dzone. But even though he had the highest percentage of dzone starts he still had the best +/- of all d-men in Dallas

What does the underlying metrics have to say about that?
