More On The Lightning And PDO

I have a confession to make: I'm a stat nerd. So CAustin's post last week on PDO sparked a number of thoughts, which led to me spending my entire Sunday afternoon making pretty spreadsheets, which led to me writing 1,200 words on the current state of the Lightning and Panthers. This post was inspired by CAustin's work, so consider it a follow-up. I also deal with PDO in the article, although I'm less optimistic about what it says about the Lightning's chances this season.

Quick summary: Yzerman needs to act if the Lightning want to have any hope of saving their season. Because this current club just ain't a playoff team.

But anyway, I'm mostly writing this to share a resource. As a part of this post, I ended up creating an Excel database on the Lightning. I exported all the regular-season 5v5 statistics for the Lightning (2007-2011) from Behind The Net into an Excel spreadsheet, and then created some Pivot Tables so that you can view a player's statistics over time.

The Pivot Tables should be easy to figure out since I already made them all, so in case the document would be useful to anyone else, I wanted to share. If you don't know what some of the statistics are, I'd check out Behind the Net and this series at Arctic Ice Hockey. You have to update the 2011 stats manually as the season goes along, so I may post updates to this spreadsheet over the season if enough people are interested.
