About This Blog

If you end up enjoying this blog, you can thank ESPN, but probably not for the reasons you think.

At some point during the 2010-2011 NHL season, I reached my wit’s end with ESPN’s inane NHL Power Rankings. I knew I could do better, and I sought to prove it. I came up with my own ranking system based on “advanced” metrics and began sharing my insights with a few of my close friends who are fellow puck heads. As the season progressed, I continued to tinker with my ranking system until I was satisfied with it. Lo and behold, at the end of the regular season, my rankings saw two teams separate themselves from the rest of the pack. Those two teams? Vancouver and Boston.

In the midst of all this, I would occasionally research and write about the Dodgers and Lakers. My friends encouraged me to put my work into a blog and let a greater audience enjoy the fruits of my labor. And so here we are, thanks in no small part to my lovely wife Reese, my close friends Nate and Faraaz, and fellow Kings fanatic, Lisa.
