Guess The Player?

So first off, the idea that (The Player) misses the net a lot or gets his shots blocked a lot are both accurate… BUT - the thing is, he takes so many effing shots that he misses and gets blocked way more times than most players. I explored his stats from last season using a combination of the NHL shots on net and missed shot totals, and his blocked shot against totals from Gabe Desjardins’ BehindTheNet.ca.  (The Player) hits the net with roughly 50% of his shot attempts. That includes the shots he tries that are blocked or miss the net.

Who is it and Detroit fans, it is not ‘Sammy”.

Wait…its NOT Sammy???  Next guess would be Schneider, but he’s probably to old?

I was thinking Kris Letang. He certainly had some accuracy issues last season…

That was clear as soon as I read this line: “(The Player) hits the net with roughly 50% of his shot attempts.”

I wonder if the Canucks charge extra or give a discount for seats on either side of the net these days. They can make a case for those seats either being more exciting or more dangerous with Sammy out there. smile
