I don't think it's a limitation of advanced stats at all...it's more understanding what the stat is telling you.

xGF means that those three players are potentially the teams best at limiting / generating scoring chances for the Canes.

But what xGF% isn't telling you is what that players finishing ability is to actually cash in on those chances.

Play driving doesn't mean play finishing.

Forget Barnburner, Mikael interviewed by Jesse and JD on CJAY92 (lol )

- Excited to go to Nashville for the NHL Awards
- Looked up to Iggy, Reggie and Gio for leadership and service in the community
- Finishing up the school year in Calgary, then going back to Sweden for the summer
- Talks about restaurants he likes around the City

From the Herald's story about Iggy joining the front office...



Look who's wearing the C in the background (all the players wore Iggy jerseys on the bench during the ceremony). It's like destiny.



And, yes, I can recognize Backlund from that blurry of an image.

I think it's fine to have a vet be the captain for 2 or 3 years. Not every team needs a 19 year old Landeskog appointed to the role or even their best player. Some time a captain is just a guy who's able to hold the others accountable.

Henri Richard was captain of a Habs team that had Lafleur, Robinson, Shutt, Dryden etc. no one batted an eye

Thank you for resolving this mind####ery.

Somehow my mind jumped to thinking there was a secret ceremony for Iggy taking a casual Skype job and Backlund was already wearing the C. Then I realized how insane that is.
