in Penalty Kill

The Penalty Kill Project is Expanding

I wasn’t expecting to receive such a positive response yesterday when I released an update on the data I’ve accumulated  and the analysis around it on the Calgary Flames penalty kill. That along with a late night discussion about more teams being tracked has brought this project to a point already where it is time to expand.

Expanding this will hopefully provide a data set that could give way to more analysis, future projects, the ability to breakdown barriers with more education content for fans, and god knows what else. In reality this is one among many larger barriers unfortunately in place that impact fans, both casual and devoted.

So with that, let’s make this an open call to anyone who is interested in systems analysis – specifically the penalty kill – and see what we can dig up through a season of tracking. This will be vital in making systems and strategy concepts digestible for everyone who loves this game.

At this point here is the current list of trackers who are involved or indirectly involved:

  1. Hey Mike. About how long does it take to track? I would think less time than a full game, right? I would love to do the Pens depending on the time it takes.

    • Hey dude!

      I usually take 15-20 minutes in some cases for each PK, but I’m usually rewatching for things. The only game state I’m really curious about is 4v5. I sorta picked the short end of the stick with the Flames’ penalty woes. Having Shiftchart and the PBP data open as well helps. At least 5-10 minutes, at max 15-20 is what I figure.

      • Hey Mike,

        I’m really interested in helping out with this project for the Canucks. Twitter is @scottycoulthard. Let me know if there’s room for me to join in.
        Thanks,
        Scott

        • Hey dude, I’ll prepare some material as I promised and have everyone so far involved; and everyone curious about joining to read through. I’ve got you on the short list, just need to sort out some others still!

      • That sounds pretty doable.

        I have never seen Shiftchart before, and I am not sure I lived without it.

        What sort of turnaround time are you looking for? Next day? Couple of days?

  2. Hey Mike, I’d be interested in helping out. I’d like to track the Kings but I’d be able to fill any void if there was another team you needed.

  3. Mike, I am interested in tracking Vancouver. However, I don’t have time right now as I’m a college student. I do have lots of time during winter break (12/17~January), so I would be available then.
