2016-2017 NHL Midseason Pipeline Snapshot


Don't get your panties all twisted. If your favorite player didn't make the top 30 list for the year, we're only talking about 20 or 30 games. It's just based upon half a season. You can look at the charts that do a regression line to each players previous work. If I haven't finished that yet, then I'm still working on it. Sometimes players get skipped because they didn't play enough games, I think it's set to 12 games. I had to enter Clayton Keller by hand because when I grabbed the data, he only had played 10 games in NCAA. That means many of the 2016 draft picks are off by one, since there are two '4's.

The previous version I put up on hockey buzz, and the response was so great, I decided not to do that again. I'll put that on this site. The last time Toronto had the best development system.

So how do I read this?


1 AUSTON MATTHEWS NHL 2638


The 1 means Auston is the top rated forward in his ought to have been draft class, so overagers are put into the next year. Auston played in the NHL this year, and his rating is 2638, which is based upon his scoring related to his team, the league that he plays in, his size, when he was born. 1000 is roughly ready for the NHL, so Auston, as you might expect, at 2638, is doing well.

These are the players that should have been drafted in the past five drafts. Let's sort this this time by single digit players. Toronto leads with six, Arizona, Carolina, Boston, Philadelphia and Nashville with five each. Calgary, Edmonton, and somehow the Rangers, with four. Many teams with three, some with two, a few worse than that. Silly metric? Sort of, how different is a '9' from a '10'?

Things to watch out for: I haven't spent enough time tuning this, 4th year NCAA players are often rated too high. As are smalls.
