#1172459 How success kills good teams (and why S. Gionta needs benching)

Posted by SterioDesign on 20 February 2013 - 02:46 PM

Tri always brings some interesting stat angles to the table, especially since most hockey fans still aren't that aware of them.  Tri's problem has always been bedside manners when it comes to presentation...he can be arrogant, condescending, and almost robotic at times, and it has a way of getting under some people's skin (admittedly Tri has ticked me off more than once).  I think his demeanor has turned off some fans' to the Fenwicks and Corsis and other microstats he brings to the board.  But I've also defended his viewpoints when I've agreed with them, and I don't think he's far off on Gio to this point...yeah, the numbers for him look pretty good, but beyond the obvious numbers, there's solid reasons to wonder if he can possibly keep this up.


This is spot on for me Colorady ( lol ) anything I posted in this whole discussion is not cause i like Gionta or anything. it's based on the fact that i'm absolutely fed up with his way of saying things, not to the point of blocking Tri of course, he's a good poster. But now every time he's shoving shooting % in a discussion to make it looks smart it's getting under my skin cause it sounds so pretentious and often it's not taking into account anything else.


I mean when anyone on this forum would say something like "Henrique has been playing pretty well with Zajac lately"... Tri would likely go and make a statement in opposition saying something like..."Henrique shooting % has been down 2.3% since playing with Zajac and long run Deboer will have to split them up cause they'll run Kovy to the ground since he was maintaining a constant % and bla bla bla bla bla" or something similar. I mean... to me now it always sounds like someone trying to look smarter than anyone and its ticking me off every time.

Yes, that crazy stat I made up called shots on goal.
Oh look, Gionta last in Corsi once again:

So fvcking what !?!?! Did you even watch the game !?! Holy sh!t youre pissing me off with your godamn stats that means nothing.

Gionta was one of the best player who created chances with his forecheck today if youre not seeing that with ur damn stats well too bad for you.

Baseball guys said the same thing about advanced baseball stats. Now it's generally agreed they work very well, after they were mocked for decades.


there's still wayyyyyy too many variables and different context in a hockey game compared to baseball. Apples and oranges

Players shouldnt have to take a paycut to compensate and help sh!tty teams who can barely survive in a market where hockey had no business there in first place. It's his own problem, deal with it you fvcking troll

#1141732 Should the New Jersey Devils Consider Going After Alexander Semin?

Posted by SterioDesign on 06 July 2012 - 03:57 PM

That's an agent saying whatever he can to jack his price and the interest of other GMs... Agents are slimy and I can't imagine there being a whole lot of genuine high-priced interest in Semin.

Crosby tried hard to get his winger... failed... now its time for malkin to get on the phone

#1141714 ‏Zach Parise has agreed to terms with the Minnesota Wild

Posted by SterioDesign on 06 July 2012 - 03:33 PM


As a CAPTAIN of a team in the STANLEY CUP FINALS.

Good grief. This is just getting worse folks.

The guy was a fraud, let's just be honest here.

personally i would have taken it WAY HARDER if he would have went to Philly, Pittsburgh or LA... the guy went home to a sh!ttier team at least
