Ryan Whitney Scoring Chances 2010-2011

Ryan Whitney posted some rather exciting results in 2010-2011.  As Jonathan noted, it was his career year, offensively, at least.  He was alone in the top pairing for most of the season as Tom Renney chose to rotate the rest of the defense through the first pairing with Whitney.  One of the Oilers' biggest needs in the off-season is stability in the top pairing - a defensively mindful partner who can cover the roost when Whitney goes roaming.

  • Whitney and the Oilers had the same .465 chance % for the entire season, but at the time Whitney went down to injury, the Oilers' team chance % was .442 - they actually improved after losing Whitney. 
  • Whitney was better than the team average in each segment, not an easy task for the team's default #1 defender.
