I keep seeing people mention the "hockey-assist" in comment threads. It's made me think that we might want come up with a list of non-boxscore stats like hockey-assist and as a group try to keep a record of them as the season goes on (maybe the playoffs or next year would be the time to give it a trial run). When Jon Nichols was contributing, he was watching games and making these kinds of observations:
It needs to be a group effort to develop the list of stats to track (maybe even dividing observers to have some watch offense, some defense, or maybe even divide up so each member is assigned just one stat to watch....having League Pass or being a consistent game-watcher would obviously be necessary). Then we'd need a mechanism for posting/comparing totals, since some of them may be largely subjective observations.
Just an idea. Doable? What stats? Discuss.
