The water Hockey players drink? NHL is over.


The NHL is over. At least the season before Stanley Cup.

Here are the numbers, courtesy of Quant hockey:

So Canada has 48.9% of the players in NHL this season, they score on average 49.3% (+0,4%) of the goals and 1,4% less than the number of players in doing assists. Their points score is 0.8 percent lower as compared to the number of players.
The USA is worse of. With 24,6 % of all players in the NHL, they only make 23.5% of the goals and only 22,1% of the assists, In points they are 2.4 Percent below what you would expect ( it is like 10 percent lower by a comparative math exercise).
The Swedes fly out of the water in comparative numbers. They score 1,3% more goals than expected on average as compared to their population in the NHL and a whopping 2,8% better than they are players as it comes to assist. With a total of game points that is 2,6% better than expected over the season, we wonder who Don Cherry is?

Nope, it is not the water you drink that makes you a better hockey player. It is culture and one part of that hockey culture is spelled - Floorball in school. Or how you give stickhandling skills to almost every citizen.

Caution

Research suggest that eye-injuries are more common in Floorball as compared to Tennis, but less common as compared to Squash (similar to Racquetball).
To minimize this risk of injury Floorballcentral recommend: Use certified protective eye-wear (mandated in many European areas for the youth). Do not lay down on the court. Follow the rules strict on stick height.

Also if you get addicted to this sport - do not blame us!
