Re: [hockeydisk] ratings team...PHY/INT
- Jagr going in the corner? Having watched the latest Pens playoff series,
every game of it. I doubt I saw Jagr go anywhere near the boards except when
he was all alone. He might have battled in the corner 5 times tops ;)
>>-How much value does a guy like Bob Bougher or Brendan Witt
an APBA league if he does not hit? Not much.
Well, now that's an interesting question. Unfortunately, as
I mentioned in my last note, I don't have a lot of time for
experimentation these days. But I have some definite ideas
as to how to answer that question. If someone has some free
time to simulate a bunch of seasons under controlled
conditions, please drop me a note (kraushaus@...).
Basically we'll want to take the generic teams I created
(all ratings identical for all players) and change one
team's d-men to PHY 4 and the other team's d-men to PHY 2.
If a Witt or a Boughner is worthwhile in APBA, we'll see a
significant advantage for the team with PHY 4 d-men. Then
we'll run the same sims with all PHY 5 vs. PHY 1 and see if
it becomes more extreme.
Incidentally, in case you haven't heard about it before, the
generic teams are available on the OHTL web site.
http://www.othl.net They're good for running simulations
in a controlled environment.
