According to the model developed by Dom Luszczyszyn, the platform’s statistical expert, the Habs rank ninth in the NHL among the most improved teams.

Clearly, the expert has never liked defenders of this calibre (Ben Chiarot isn’t his favourite either), but he also considers that Joel has slowed down a lot.
And since he’s not known for scoring, it’s understandable that the expert doesn’t think Eddy is as sharp defensively as he used to be. After all, he likes the Drouin/Newhook switch, but for him, it’s not the #1 aspect to consider when ranking the CH ninth in the standings.
The Habs’ big win, though, comes from addition via subtraction. – Dom Luszczyszyn
In his eyes, he’s already been very strong defensively, but subtracting him from the equation right now is a good thing. He feels that the CH is better off without him, and that getting rid of him was a good move by the CH.
He doesn’t pull any punches, as they say.
You won’t be surprised to learn that the expert ranks the Capitals 21st. That’s because one of their biggest acquisitions is Edmundson.
He also says that picking up Max Pacioretty is a risk because of his health – which is true.
– Your questions.
– Too many Penguins goalies?

– He’s got to get back up.
It didn’t show in his last start, though. https://t.co/eAvJfJcgn8
