NHL Players On Fancy Stats

from Frank Seravalli of TSN,

TSN polled 18 players over two days earlier this month in New York at the NHL/NHLPA Player Media Tour.

The question was simple: “Do you know what your Corsi percentage was last season?”

The answer: Not a single one of those players had even a vague idea.

“No,” Patrick Kane said. “I couldn’t even tell you what a good Corsi is. It’s not something our team really pays attention to.”

“No clue,” Tyler Seguin said. “I don’t really look at the Corsi stuff.”

“No idea,” T.J. Oshie said. “I don’t even know what Corsi is. I know it’s something about shots on net.”

“Nope,” Jordan Eberle said.

“I don’t know my Corsi,” Jack Eichel said. “I don’t pay attention at all. I’ve heard of it.”

The follow-up question: “Do you know what your plus/minus was last season?”
