baseball-reference website? I've used it on occasion, but I found it
maddening to use.
On another note, there is another hockey stats database project,
developed independent from the other online sources.
That one is different because it is actually an online application that
does not allow you unfettered access to raw data, but gives you an
interface to query it. From what the site says, it only goes to 2004. I
suppose the problem with any such site is that there is a risk that they
will get discouraged and give up.
