In the New York Times Slap Shot blog, Jeff Z. Klein surveys the state of statistical analysis of the NHL, and finds a variety of interesting topics being investigated:
...now the raw numbers for hockey are readily available in all kinds of categories, and that has led to the emergence of a new generation of figure filberts (not our phrase; that comes from The Hockey News, circa 1985). Happily, their work is out there for all to see, thanks to blogs and other instruments of the Internet.
Klein provides a nice tour around the hockey world to see what people are digging into, and kindly notes my attempt to crown a “Least Valuable Player” recently (and yes, I’ll be coming back around on that question later in the season).
