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:
|New York Islanders|
|New York Rangers||Shayna Goldman||hayyyshayyy|
|Tampa Bay||David Iwanowski||diwan1|
So if you’re interested please let me know in the comments below, message me on Twitter (my DMs are always open, or just @ me), or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. A reminder that all data collected from this project is 100% publicly available.
