Three Defencemen and Two Stooges

Let’s compare three NHL defensemen who play a similar style, all of whom will be playing for new teams this off-season:

Player A (32 years old, 5’11", 190lbs)

2007-08: 3rd in QualComp, 0.67 PTS/60 EV, 4.48 PTS/60 PP, -2.00
2006-07: 5th in QualComp, 0.92 PTS/60 EV, 4.21 PTS/60 PP, -0.04

Player B (32 years old, 5’10", 183 lbs)

2007-08: 4th in QualComp, 0.80 PTS/60 EV, 2.77 PTS/60 PP, -0.67
2006-07: 3rd in QualComp, 1.24 PTS/60 EV, 4.82 PTS/60 PP, +.21

Player C (39 years old, 5’11", 187 lbs)

2007-08: 5th in QualComp, 1.15 PTS/60 EV, 2.44 PTS/60 PP, +1.33
2006-07: 5th in QualComp, 1.07 PTS/60 EV, 5.13 PTS/60 PP, +0.93

QualComp = Quality of Competition as per Behindthenet.ca
PTS/60 EV = Points scored per 60 minutes of ice-time at even strength
PTS/60 PP = Points scored per 60 minutes of ice-time on the power-play
+/- = Goal differential per 60 minutes of ice-time
