With the tracking project he has had his face buried in for months now finally starting to get the widespread attention that it deserves, we had Corey Sznajder join the show this week. We discussed which players – like Valtteri Filppula for example, who’s pictured above – have particularly caught his eye in the games he has tracked thus far.
We also looked into whether their strong zone entry data is something that those holding out hope that the Colorado Avalanche won’t fold like a deck of cards this coming season can find solace in, and whether the unseemly zone exit numbers for the Canucks will be righted now that John Tortorella and his system are out of the picture.
There’s also a Severin Blindenbacher reference somewhere in there, too.
As we mentioned on the show, if you’d like to chip in and help fund Corey’s invaluable efforts, you can do so right here.
