Don't go away mad, just go away

You're an NHL fan. You spend your hard-earned money every year going to games. You buy merchandise. You subscribe to Centre Ice. You've been through one, maybe two lockouts, and even a strike if you're really old. And now they're threatening to make you go through yet another lockout.

This makes you mad.

The Jets got a bit of unhappy news this afternoon, as Zach Bogosian's right wrist is hors de Xbox, or something along that line, and will require surgery and a recovery period lasting as long as six months. Under normal circumstances, that would be dreadful news, but with a potential lockout on the horizon, that might be downgraded to merely lousy, depending on how long the NHL is shuttered.

Eric T. has been performing yeoman work this summer over at NHL Numbers, and he added another excellent article to his collection last week with a look at Quality of Competition. What makes this look at the subject a bit different is that the data used in measuring that quality was time on ice of opposing forwards and defencemen, and not out-shooting.
