Now if the Wild were to hold these numbers for a majority of the season, they should have an impressive record. But whether that happens actually remains to be seen.
But something that has been noticed the last few days is what these numbers don't tell us. They can tell us how many shot attempts a team takes or a goalies save percentage at even strength. They are pretty nice things to know (still working on getting down Fenwick and Corsi).
These advanced stats can tell you a lot, but do they help the Wild score? No (the team is snakebiten and will try to bust out of that slump in Florida tomorrow). Do they help us when one of the game's elite scorers blows by your $98 million defenseman? No.
I try and further my understanding of these advanced stats daily, but when stuff like that happens, you wonder what's the point?
Can the Wild become a team who dominate the stat lines, but yet can't win a game? Again, only time will tell...
