required reading for denizens of ‘blueland’

local blogger ‘the falconer’ has started a new blog called ‘do the thrashers have large talons?’ (serious kudos on the name) devoted to all things thrashers and some general hockey info thrown in for good measure.

it’s a mixture of quantitative analysis and the falconer’s general opinions and observations. great blog. i spent some time reading through it yesterday. awesome analysis and some of the statistical work seems pretty cool. the falconer is obviously looking to apply the sabermetrics technique to hockey.

i am trying to get back into hockey this year and maybe even become a thrashers fan so i have added ‘do the thrashers have large talons?’ to my feed-reader. if you are a thrashers fan or thinking of being one, check it out.

hat tip to rich at cable and tweed.

    Glad to see Thrasher Talons getting some attention. The Falconer knows his hockey.
