ScuttlePuck Episode 12: Joe Thornton loses C. Leafs hire more Fancy Stats guys.

Episode 12 is a long one as Pete and I discuss the San Jose Sharks taking the C from Joe Thornton.  We comment on the Toronto Maple Leafs hiring more fancy stats people so they now have an Analytics Department.  Times change fast.  Josh Ho-Sang of the New York Islanders spoke up this week and we ask if that’s a good thing (it is).

We answer some listener questions, regarding this year’s batch of rookies like Aaron Ekblad, ScuttlepuckLogo_smlJonathan Drouin, Sam Bennett, Sam Reinhart and Josh Ho-Sang.

Western Conference predictions are made as well – listen to find out if the Chicago Blackhawks will finish first in the Central again and will San Jose’s struggles give the LA Kings or Anaheim Ducks a shot at first in the Pacific.
