I just wanted to link to 2 amazing posts about the nhl draft. Daoust, at Pension Plan Puppets, and then the Falconer, from Birds Watchers Anonymous both developped very elaborate systems to assess the quality and the success of the different nhl franchises when it comes to drafting young players.
Daoust provided an unbelievable spreadsheet that you can play with for hours. It covers the last 15 years and it’s amazing.
Then the Falconer came up with his own system, and gave a grade for each single pick made by each single team since 1999. Wow.
If you’re a little nerdy and like stats, you’ll have a blast.
