[hockeydisk] Re: new disk
- Actually in our league, Osgood has been incredible, a GAA of 1.30 and a save
percentage of .935. Now he has only played the weaker teams in the league
and has Niedermayer, D.Hatcher, Foote, Morris, Tverdosky and Lefebvre in
front of him. His team mate Khabibulin has a Save Pct of .930 and a 1.80
GAA. Khabby was a top 5 in save percentage last year in the NHL. Hasek is
still first in our league in SPCT. with .936.
Moss is running around .918 on a mediorce club, and Roussel is running .924.
The freak we have is Maracle.....2.06 and .924........
This is why I suggested maybe a cross section of all leagues to see who isnt
right.....Jagr, and Kariya arent doing very well in our league and Bure has
52 points (35 goals) in 58 games...... (his team has played 70 games so far)
I am just tossing the idea out there for consideration....

- Hi Dave et alI am glad there is many folks that want to see the new disk - I am not sure I would do without sim hockey leagues to fill my time....I have all the NHL.com stats. I need to do some double checking to make sure that all the split stats are complete - I will do that some time in the next weeks.I don't have the boxscores yet - I need to tweak my app to harvest all the files due to some tricks NHL.com put in this year. I will get that done on Saturday.Derrick

Based on the flood of emails that came in during the few hours after my
post, it is safe to say that there is still interest in a new disk, and
it looks like there will probably be enough reviewers to support the
creation. So, we'll do another one this year, and shoot for even a
better, more accurate disk than past years!!!
