<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>olson_22</b></div><div>“Allows you to stop paying attention” how it in no way affects the way I watch hockey. What do you mean “think you know what you are talking about.” Tampa Colorado Vegas all headed by an analytics staff keep thinking that they don’t work. All successful teams use and have used analytics in there decision making. What makes you think stats don’t track puck retrieval, good dump ins and gap control. All of that is tracked as well. Well the eye test is useful and I love watching hockey. Stats only highten that enjoyment as you can see a players all around value. And where do you get the idea that Dougie is a bad d he’s great using both analytics and watching him.</div></div>

Dougie does not get the respect he deserves. People watch a player make 1 bad pass during the game and automatically think they are bad or something lol. Dougie plays great gap and has a great stick along with strong mobility for his size. People are just to lazy to further their knowledge about hockey so the typical response is to just call us nerds for looking at analytics. You're absolutely right as well that all the good teams have strong analytical departments and it clearly shows in their teams play. Like my favourite team is the Jets and they were terrible analytically last season except for Hellebuyck, and that was clearly backed up by the eye test, it was so hard to watch them this past season. The fact that so many people refuse the thought of expanding the understanding of the game is just beyond me.

Penguins have maybe one of the worse bottom sixes in the NHL... Not to mention they are banking on Matheson and Ceci becoming good players.

NOT TO MENTION they had a great 1-2 punch in net.... now they dont. so many thing that need to go right for this to make any sense.</div></div>

It really depends on how they construct their lineup in my opinion. I could see them doing really good or near the bottom. They are hit or miss
