Just The Facts

from Kevin Allen of Detroit Hockey Now,

Here are six things going on with the Detroit Red Wings that may have escaped your notice:

Tyler Bertuzzi Slumping
Detroit fans were over the moon about Bertuzzi’s start. It was memorable. But he hasn’t been the same player lately. He has gone nine games without a goal. He has three points in those nine games. By  comparison,  Bertuzzi’s center, Dylan Larkin, has points in eight of his past nine games. Larkin has accumulated 11 points in those nine games. His other wing, Lucas Raymond, has three goals and seven points in that span. In those nine games, Raymond has 14 shots on goal. Bertuzzi has 22, but eight of those came in the last game against Buffalo

Too Many Shots on Goal
Only four teams are giving up more shots on goal than the Detroit Red Wings. The Red Wings are giving up an average of 33.7 shots per game. The Edmonton Oilers, Columbus Blue Jackets,  Ottawa Senators and Philadelphia Flyers are the only teams giving up more.

I take issue with Allen’s assessments of corsi and DK blaming.  Staal is a third pair dman so….

When I checked Corsi numbers shortly after they switched pairs, seider had 51 and leddy had 49.  Now leddy is 46 and seider is evidently below 49 since zadina leads the team corsi with 49.

I think that’s telling that blashill is spreading his talent too thin and both seiders and peddys partners are weighing them down.  Cause they. We’re great together if their corsis were that high a couple weeks ago.

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature.  Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
