This will be a very normal hockey blog. I won’t act like I know more than you do, I will try to incorporate as much real and relevant information as I can, and I will harbor a strong bias for my favorite teams. I want to discuss the NHL, NCAA, foreign leagues and minor leagues in North America.

I want to get this started as a way to experiment with my own thoughts on my favorite sport and hopefully entertain some people in the process. Someday I want to create a sensible way to calculate the value of defensive players. The learning process starts here. This is an exciting time for the progression of analytics in the hockey world and I want to contribute where I can, in however small a manner that may be.
