Updated Edmonton Oilers Possession Stats

Corsi, Zonestarts, Quality of Competition, Quality of Teammate, and Zonestart-adjusted Corsi

Below is a bubble chart, embedded from Google Docs, displaying updated on-ice results for the Edmonton Oilers.  The chart will refresh each day, giving you an updated view of not only the underlying possession stats for the Oilers, but a high-level view of Dallas Eakins' on-ice player deployment strategies.

Editor's Note: Please note that this chart covers all 5v5 play, and does not account for game situation, i.e. game tied, down by 2, up by 2.

The horizontal axis shows qualcomp, specifically Corsi quality of competition taken from the venerable and terrifying Gabriel Desjardins' behindthenet.ca. The vertical axis shows Corsi quality of teammates, also from Desjardins' behindthenet.ca.  Both of those values are taken from here.  The bubbles are color-coded: blue means the player in the bubble has a positive zonestart-adjusted Corsi, red a negative. Finally, the size of the bubble indicates absolute value zonestart-adjusted Corsi.  Zonestart data is taken from here.

Editor's Note:  The chart will be pinned in the first slot under the headline pictures for the entirety of the season.
