Until it's (hopefully) up and running, this page will give you a glimpse into how I conducted my fantasy hockey league back in the nineties. I'd love to get back to this, and the main problem earlier should be fixed by modern technology. The problem
was time! It used to be a very time-consuming hobby (for me, at least), as I had to use physical copies of The Hockey News every week, compare it with the preceding issue, and manually calculate the numbers of 11 different personal stats for every single skater,
and four stats for goaltenders. I don't know for sure, but I think there are some engines out there that track weekly player stats, making this a breeze compared to back in the days. Maybe some of you can give me some pointers in this regard?
the eleven most prominent skater stats and the four most prominent goaltender stats and divided them into the three periods of a game like this:
Off: Goals, Assists and Points
Def: Goals Against Average and Wins
Off: Power Play Goals, Shorthanded Goals and Game-winning Goals
Def: +/- and PIM
Off: Game-tying Goals, Shots and Shooting Percentage
Def: Shutouts and Save Percentage
The order of the different statistics is,
of course, arbitrary, but I did it like this, because that was the order of those stats columns in THN at the time. Some stats may be switched with others, but that was what I used to use.
