"According to dumbs model one point six wins worse. Which is you know not enough to offset their improvement upfront. In terms of making it so that we wouldn't say that the canucks have improved like they clearly have but it's concerning and while there are reasons to believe that guys like hughes and rathbone ackman larson can outperform. The projection is dom slots them in currently one point. Six wins is a massive cult. Like that's a massive loss in quality based on this model and as i sort of peered back the layers. A bit the impetus being this these conclusions. I realized like ed learn schmidt were the most used defensive pair. Last season they played toughest minutes. They played five hundred forty minutes together. All told little bit more than that and the connects. Were actually even at five on five in those minutes. It was in the other twenty one hundred minutes. Gentlemen that connects were outscored by twenty eight right twenty eight now. It's actually pretty impressive considering the quality of the roster all around the schmidt nadler and it didn't always look pretty. I don't think at any point anyone said. Wow that pairs and as for the connects like if only the rest of the team. Was you know sort of holding their own like those guys. They'd be fine. Like i don't think it ever looked pretty. But when you look at the results you know finding away to offset that finding a way to make sure that the negative twenty eight that the other pairs or the other combinations of pairs managed last season doesn't bleed into their toughest match-ups like that's the test here. And that's the test that you know i suspect pullman and ackman larson are gonna have to pass if the big big ask and you know as i thought about. It turned it over looked. At this data it becomes clearer and clearer. That not only if the connects potentially on paper gotten worse on the back end with their series of offseason moves but the specific area that they've gotten worse is the highest danger minutes. It's the matchup minutes themselves. And that's where boy they are going to count on a player like pullman to perform at a level. He's never managed in the nhl to this point and a player like ecm larson to bounce back to a form that he hasn't shown in you know several years not just last year but several years. Oh yell myers hammock shin and probably hunt if he can stay up in the nhl all in their thirties. Of course the options of players in their twenties and the blue pullman hughes rathbone. And you lovey. I mean they never get four twentysomethings in on the ice even with a couple of even with an injury or two. I suspect there's a maximum of three guys in their twenties on the boot line. At any given moment. Yeah i mean unless you get to kyle boroughs. Brady keep her territory which you could. I mean that's the other thing to watch for here is going to be in the event that some of the rights struggle you know brad. Hunt's played the majority of his nhl games on the right side like does that become an option. They consider Do they start to look at keeper and boroughs Two guys who haven't got a ton of nhl reps. But i mean i see reasons there to believe. They could be more than they've been to this point in their careers. I won't shock me like fundamentally. This club has a level of depth on the right side of their blue line in particular where you know in my view you need to cycle through. If it's not working you need to change. You need to be flexible enough to go. Eight nine deep to find answers because the answers may be counter intuitive..

"Seem i saw you pen yesterday. Though for the athletic twenty twenty one off season moves. Where are they an are they worse. Let's get to that and then we'll get to the nhl news of the day in the poll question. Whether there's any compare and contrast here between fetched. Knockoff couturier pederson. And here's give us the crux. Tom of what you pay yesterday. Well so the crux is that at the athletic. I'm blessed to have access to dom la- citians model right and domeless asian projects odds and actually does gamble but his model is designed to adjudicate and handout based on a variety about puts including counting stats and the underlying data accounting for both and assigns a score to each player that's core becomes part of an output which then projects games and we've seen like this model has proven ear. After year in the regular season. He outperforms the betting markets and all other publicly available models. Right so look. It's never gonna be perfect instrument but it's extremely telling extremely useful and is the better tool for prognostication than ex guy on their barstool and in fact then even the vegas bookies right even the people paid and with with lots of skin in the game to prognosticate effectively donald performs them. So i plug in the canucks based on their roster last year. And this is a hypothetical world in which they made no changes in just ran back twenty twenty one roster and they're twenty twenty two roster as it sits on paper i plug these into the model and i compare and contrast and effectively unable to measure like how much better are there. Forwards according to dumbs model therefore forward group is worth an additional four wins almost over there forward group last season. that's massive that's tremendous improvement like huge. And i don't think that's a shock to anybody and it's not just that they brought in some good forward. Some guys like connor garland and jason dickinson. But the swing when you go from a player like jay beagle who domes model projects as being worth negative point. Eight wins over. The course of a full season to a positive contributor like dickinson like that swing is huge. And when you consider what. The connects iced in their bottom six last year. When you consider the opportunities that guys like matthew high moron and jimmy got when you consider that tyler mont played third-line minute phone of third-line minutes for them. You know the the massive advantage you get from just plugging in guys like garland and dickinson and vasily podkolzin. Even though the model doesn't really know what to do with the guy who has no nhl track record like when you plug in even neutral contributors to that group. The improvement is tremendous huge. A quantum step forward upfront. However on the back end and this is why to go position by position and sort of isolate what we hear on the back end. I mean how much have you guys heard. People worry about how the connects will fare in the wake of alex adler nate schmidt's departure in this market has been talked about it. All right able are hopeful and wants to believe that. Ackman larson is going to find his mojo again. Get his groove back. And that pullman is an upgrade as well and then of course more from rathbone boss certain savings. Anyway i mean i. It's not some. I think below that you think you're hearing a bit of it. Yeah i think there's people out there that a little. Tom suggests that that an average below average defense is arguably worse. Yeah yeah. I mean well..

"The optimism is nearly as there. But i mean i see sort of another preseason where can nation is optimistic and pretty much every other. Nhl market doesn't think much of their team fair. It's it's the. It's the big splash thing right. You know they went out. They obviously made a big trade Picked up obviously the high profile named alva rex. and let's not sleep on connor garland. But it's still a bet on ecm larson being better than he's been in recent years i don't think they're trading for norris trophy defenseman but they're they're they're trading for player they believe can be better. It's a big bet right but it's splashy it's a name has been talked about for awhile. overhauling i mean overhauling. If you will the defense if you wanna call it that but at the same time you know tucker pullman travis hammock are going to be asked to do a lot more than i think is really what they're capable of that to me in. The end is going to be where the bulk of the story. The season lies. I mean along with ken thatcher. Damn co keep it keep going. I mean you had you had a pretty good rookie season. Not an amazing rookie. Season had a really good stretch but some really bad stretches this past season came. He put it all together. Be that consistent guy. You know fifty five sixty nights this year Does your whole still have what they need from your to be that solid backup goaltender. I mean that's been a story here for for so long with the exception really. I suppose the cory schneider years and and you know briefly. I guess you know various points. When eddie lack had a good run vine ryan miller when jacob from i showed up i suppose but really the you know the the struggles of the backup. Goalie was such a story for so long here You know you wonder if that'll be back and they should be able to to score in bunches but at the same time. There's a lot of pressure on that defense and you know. I think the outside view is that you know to go back to your point. This defense isn't good. Nothing even with Hughes returning to some of the form he had they're going to have some challenges Which we saw plenty of last year. This was not a good defense team last year. Obviously the mix is a bit different But let's not forget that even in nineteen twenty when they were sort of lauded for improving playing up tempo hockey. They weren't great in their own end. Either i'm really not looking forward to the analysis of all ackman larson all season long because the minute us criticize him once this year be like guys never gave him a chance. I am not looking for the case. guarantee you. it'll be. I mean if you're talking about pointing out a mistake on opening night in a win yeah sure but you know i i think you know if it becomes clear that he's not the guy he used to be. I mean i think he's a very intelligent fan base..

"Boy high powered offense. They can't deny that. I wanted to score league. They're scoring without tarasenko to which is very impressive and They lost alex. Betray angelo offseason. Who was a very big power. Play guy for them. cult perico. Who i think is another one of the best defense league. He's having a bit of a down year and they're still managing to be okay. As long as they can mitigate long enough for him to get back on track skull tending beddington just has the stretches where he's very questionable is either next campbell lord. Yeah he he honestly might be. You know there may be. He might just be riding on that cup win for the rest of his career. Who knows Well they signed so far and once again. this is another theme. We haven't been able to gauge everything. Something's avenue face each other so far or they've only face each other so like they've only played three games between them and and other vegas colorado doesn't say much. What make an assumption. But the next thing will go over is the arizona coyotes. They just finished. They just finished playing each other seven times half their games. They played fifteen and sixteen games against each other. The coyotes hung with the blues. Their priorities won the series four three. Yeah so even though. Maybe internally the coyotes appalling part because katie strang came out with a athletic article that just shows how utterly disastrous the coyotes are internally with as ever since this new said that they have started which they were trying to trade away. All of recommend larson in the offseason and everyone was basically for sale. But they've had an urgent of young players like garland clayton keller castle to get his scoring touch back. I'm sure if engine was here he would ask. This question is kind of this. So i have this. I want to see what you think of it. I've this wild idea. Maybe not too wild in the grand scheme of the nhl. Because it's been something that's been done before. But i i thought of what if the nhl instead of contracting. Have you merged the arizona coyotes with the florida panthers meaning we get the best of both worlds the best players we might have like. I'm just saying you get all the young prospects all all goodies that you love. We get all the best of the best from them. We just ship off all the deadly. We get from both franchises. Your fill away arizona. Things didn't work out in the desert over there make everybody else. Happy seattle's any tells the seattle thirty one team now and so you get a thirty second team. You get some of that expansion draft or expansion money from group that wants to team in. I don't know you stayed or quebec. Whatever the hell you. And you have a bolstered. Florida panthers franchise and sunrise with oliver ackman larson with aaron ick. And just imagine. Just imagine if that were to happen ask just all the panthers offense with air blab the coyotes defense and the coyotes goaltending the best of both the best in he. Suddenly you have one last problem franchise. Nhl and we can stop hearing people talk about relocation. That's my wild idea. Anne tells done this before they did it with the minnesota north stars when they merged them with the cleveland..
