Friday Hurricanes Report

Carolina Hurricanes News

My Opinion: While this doesn’t deal directly with the Canes, the use of statistics has been a growing debate among hockey journalists.I, for one, am not a huge fan of the advanced statistics. There are times when they are useful and I understand why they are used, but they can also be misleading.

One example is Bobby Sanguinetti. Looking at his advanced statistics from last season, it looked like he had a good season, but watching the Hurricanes’ games, fans would know he had an extremely rough season. So, while the statistics can be helpful, I believe that watching the games and taking notice of players is a better way to tell how much of an impact a player makes.

If you’re interested in why the advanced statistics can be used for good, I definitely recommend reading Corey’s blog.
