Oilers Even Strength Scoring Chances - Updated

Dennis King at MC79hockey.com, was able to update the missing games after Vic Ferrari of timeonice.com did a little update to his his tracking tools and we've got a complete picture in the even strength scoring chances numbers for the Oilers at the quarter pole.

I've broken the chances down by forward and defenseman.  TSC = total scoring chances, TSCA = total scoring chances against, CF/15 = chances for per 15 minutes of even strength time, CA/15 = chances against per 15 minutes of even strength time, SCDIFF = scoring chances difference, DIFF/15 = scoring chances difference per 15 minutes of ice time.   The table is sorted by DIFF/15.

Dustin Penner is the only Oiler with a positive chances differential.  Jordan Eberle leads the team in chances for / 15, Penner is second.  Magnus Paajarvi and the 4th line are struggling terribly.

No regular defenseman is in the black this season, but Shawn Belle playing bottom minutes in his short stint did alright by himself.

As expected, Jason Strudwick is the worst by both counts, but Kurtis Foster is hot on his heels.  Everyone's favorite whipping boy, Tom Gilbert, remains the best even-strength defenseman on the team.

Finally the goaltenders at even strength:
