Some people think Darryl Metcalf (Extra Skater) has been/is about to be hired by the NHL to run their own stats site.

I believe if this were to happen, this site would incorporate everything he was doing previously on ExtraSkater.

I'm still not sure what to make of this. At first I thought it would suck but all the stats guys on twitter don't seem worried at all. Looks like Extra Skater may be getting a job though according to Elliotte Friedman:

"Have had a few questions about @ExtraSkater today. It was not an NHL-mandated shutdown. Maybe he was "Dellowed."

 

If that's the case good for him but I really hope if the NHL picked him up they will make their stats site available to the public. I appreciate sites like Behind the Net but the interface isn't great and it doesn't update nearly as fast.

Extraskater was my favorite site. Now it's offline. :( :( :(

 

All the other stats sites are absolutely TERRIBLE in the usability department.

I actually like (prefer) behindthe et but I don't look at the advanced stats that often enough to have noticed a major difference.

Like tri suggested it'd be silly for the nhl to just not allow users to take the stats for revenue reasons. Instead they probably look at it as a revenue opportunity by just including the stats in their sites already.

It'd be like a company that sells pizza ingredients one day having a lightbulb go off and say, "hey maybe we can make more money by just making the pizzas ourselves!"

The Leafs have hired Mr. Extra Skater, Darryl Metcalf, as well as excellent hockey blogger Cam Charron. Awesome for them. 

 

Extra Skater really helped me get into advanced stats and made it easy as hell too. Hopefully, someone can have a site as good as him.

This summer has really killed content for the upcoming hockey season.  Hopefully other bloggers step up and create some good places to go
