Oscar Lindberg: 24 Pts in 29 GP

3

Lindberg, the 21 year old 2010 Phoenix 2nd round draft pick who was acquired by NYR for Ethan Werek, has made a solid jump in production this year in the SEL for Skelleftea HC with 24 points (9 + 15) in 29 games played. This is interesting because Lindberg is posting a PPG rate of 0.83 currently, which translates to average 0.65 PPG in the NHL (or just over 50 points/82 games). This is not the gospel, but it shows the potential Lindberg could have if he continues to develop.

Rangers are Indeed Playing Better

+

From George aka @RangerSmurf: "First 16 games, 10-3-3 record, 45.2% FenTied, 104.5 PDO. Last 9 games, 5-3-1 record, 53.2% FenTied, 101.9 PDO" Remember I posted "no news is not good news" and said they still don't really have it going but also kinda said its been a bit better? George noted it in the comments and updated it after last night. PDO is down towards the average (good) and a 53.2% Fenwick at tied scores during the game would make the Rangers a top ten club pretty easily. These are good signs that the Rangers are in the other teams zone more than theirs.

ESPN NY: Rangers Cup Window is Open

An article that (maybe) we can all agree on. Fair warning, there are those number thingy's called advanced stats involved, and they actually prove that the Rangers are moving forward (and that Stepan might not have a sophomore slump if he stays in the same role as George pointed out yesterday). Other than that, there are two other reasons why this story is a good read: 1) An attention to the fact that Hank is aging, so NYR better hurry. 2) Proves once-more that Christensen should be buried/bought out/whatever. Time to believe?

Rangers Most Improved ?

25

That's what Robert Vollman at Puck Prospectus believes after he took a look at the advanced projection stats for the upcoming season. "The New York Rangers will fly up the standings from 21st to 8th, according to the predictions we published in Hockey Prospectus 2010-11. But does our assertion that the New York Rangers are the league's most improved team really stand up to objective analysis? Let's pop open the hood and see." If you're a numbers guy like me you'll really like the article and the prospect of it all coming true.

"First We Take Manhattan"

From one of my favorite hockey blogs outside of this one, Hockey or Die: "Derek Boogaard played less than 6 minutes per game in 2009-10, and he only dressed in 57 games with the Wild. Sather, apparently, has bigger plans for Boogaard on his roster. As the guys at Hockey Wilderness have pointed out, Boogaard would make $4707 per minute with his new deal based on his totals from last season. What could possibly (dementia) have convinced Sather that the same problems his club faced with Donald Brashear wouldn’t resurface with Derek Boogaard?"

Staal a top Defensive D-Man

19

According to James Mirtle, who put together a chart that took into account three advanced NHL statistics (Quality of Competition, Goals Against at Even Strength, and Goals Against while Shorthanded). Marc Staal ranked first in the league amongst all D-Men (min. 50 games played). At 23 Staal is coming along perfectly (even his offensive stats are on projections). Enjoy the feeling of a win tonight Blueshirt fans and also know that our #1 D-Man is a rock when it comes to Defense.
