When I heard of the health situation of Gino Odjick I felt very sad for him and his family. Although we never played together on the same team, I always felt we had a unique bond.

I have been out of the NHL for three full years now. As a player I never once heard of advanced stats inside our dressing room. A coach never brought it to our attention or discussed it with us individually or as a group. Since then the analytical part of the game has picked up momentum. It is gaining traction and respect throughout the hockey world.
So why does it seem that for many people it is one or the other? Analytics or traditional hockey thinking?

Last season the Oilers took a step backwards on the power play. Their success rate dropped three percent, going from twenty to seventeen. The team ranked just twenty-first in the NHL at the end of the year.

Jake Gardiner signed a nice deal with the Leafs this weekend. Five years at roughly four million a season. Not a crazy number for the Leafs to swallow. Gardiner has got some stability contract wise, something NHL players love to have. Now that the deal is done it is time to park it and look at how he can become more.
