"Ryan Jones has been improving throughout the season." After mentioning Ryan Jones' inferior Corsi and his scoring chance WOWY, his improvement and consistency were both brought into question. If he's been much better lately, perhaps there's a player in there after all. Rather than looking at a before and after, I've broken out his scoring chances in ten game segments for comparison. After the jump are those results.
TCF = Total even strength chances for on, TCA = Total even strength chances against on, SCF = Total even strength chances for on during the 10 game segment, SCA = Total even strength chances against on during the 10 game segment
The table below contains Ryan Jones' scoring chances by ten-game segment.
|Game #||TCF||TCA||SCF||SCA||Period Average||Raw Average|
Jones hit .426 during games 41-50, clearly his season high. It moved his raw season average up to .351 from .325.
The demand for graphs is always high, so below is a graphical representation of the above table with Jones' season average and the Oilers' season average marked by the labeled red lines.:
