Who is playing well at Even Strength?
Are the Thrashers out-shooting or being outshot when this player is on the ice? (Corsi Numbers)
Team
-27 Atlanta Thrashers
Defense
+17 Bogosian
+17 Oystrick
+13 Schneider
+6 Valabik
-15 Hainsey
-19 Exelby
-36 Havelid
-42 Enstrom
Comments: The Enstrom-Havelid duo were badly outshot in the first 10 games but they have rebounded in the last 5 games. Exelby-Hainsey were great their 1st 5 games but have been on the minus side the last 10 games.

Forwards
+51 Armstrong
+30 Reasoner
+5 Christensen
-1 Perrin
-2 Thorburn
-2 Kozlov
-6 Sterling
-10 Williams
-19 Kovlachuk
-22 Slater
-27 Boulton
-35 White
-38 Little
Comments: The Little-White-Kozlov line has been scoring but they are giving up a lot of chances against so far this season. The 3rd line has done exactly what you want them to do--play in the other team's end and put pucks on the opposition net. Armstrong is simply amazing--whenever he is on the ice the Thrashers outplay the opposition.

Who is playing well on the Power Play? (minimum 5 minutes total)
What I've done is calculate the Expected Team PP Goals For for each player and then compared it to their actual number. A plus number means that the Thrashers PP has been more effective when that player is out on the ice in that situation.
+1.76 Jason Williams
+1.43 Nathan Oystrick
+1.36 Todd White
+1.16 Slava Kozlov
+0.77 Colby Armstrong
+0.71 Nic Havelid

-0.57 Erik Christensen

Who is playing well on the Penalty Kill?
What I've done is calculate the Expected Team PK Goals Against for each player and then compared it to their actual number. A plus number means that the Thrashers PK has been more effective when that player is out on the ice in that situation.
+3.12 Eric Perrin
+2.50 Ron Hainsey

* on for a 5>3 PK goal against.

Even Strength: Shots For - Shots Against = Shot Differential 324-358 = -34
Power Play: Shots For - Shots Against = Shot Differential
99-125 = -26
Short Handed: Shots For - Shots Against = Shot Differential
6- 20 = -14
Total: Shots For - Shots Against = Shot Differential
429-503 = -74
