<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>The_Rocket</b></div><div>Okay I looked it up. Evolving-Hockey had him in the 74th percentile last year for forwards. Meaning 1/4 of the forwards in the league were better than him based on their GAr/xGAR rankings.
Fiala’s 0.8 ppg last year ranked him 69th (nice) in the league amongst forwards. He would have been 4th amongst Canucks forwards in points per game. This is really good 2nd line level production by a really good 2nd line level player.
At BEST he is a border line 1st line forward but at this point it’s just semantics</div></div>
Most Common Linemates
Fiala: Parise, Koivu, Johansson, Hartman, Bonino, Gaudreau, Hartman
Boeser: Pettersson, Miller, Hoglander
Since 2019-20, Fiala has the same output as Boeser despite less time, which means he scores at a higher rate. He drives play better and creates better offensive opportunities for himself and his linemates. He has a more positive impact on the game and contributes more to team success. He does all of this despite having significantly worse linemates.
The two teams have had similar PP% during that time, and Fiala and Boeser produce similar output (total points) on the PP as well, despite the fact that Boeser has averaged 1:03 more on the PP per game during that time. That means he gets 38% more PP time than Fiala does, and produces the same number of points on an equally competent power play.
This has been really fun, let's do it again some time.
