Joined by Ganesh Murdeshwar (@oilersnerdalert) to talk Oilers and how they can integrate and use analytics in a more meaningful way. Ganesh shared his background in analytics, from programming to taking on executive positions in different industries, and eventually applying his knowledge to hockey as a consultant. He also shared the motivation behind Puck IQ – one of the top player evaluation tools that focuses on quality-of-competition. We talked about the comments Holland recently made about analytics and how the Oilers view and utilize it. Ganesh also shared his thoughts on the steps the Oilers would need to take if they wanted to enhance their hockey operations and improve their decision-making processes.
