O’BRIEN VS. KRAJICEK

by Ron Spence

Stats.HockeyAnalysis.com does an interesting analysis of NHL players’ rankings.

Below is the explanation for their criteria:

Player Rankings

The Player rankings are calculated by considering how many goals are scored or given up when a player is on the ice compared to when that player is not on the ice. Also considered is how well players who play with him perform compared to how well they perform when they are not playing with him. The player performance with and against other players stats (see below) is a basis for the computation of these stats. Ratings are given for defense, offense and overall performance. The ratings are ice time independent. Also shown is a Total Contribution rating which is loosely defined as the players rating multiplied by the players ice time. So, a player with a good overall rating and who plays a lot will get the highest total contribution scores.

I have been most curious as to how Shane O’Brien is doing – in comparison to Lukas Krajicek – and have highlighted their stats.
