Frozen Pools

 

The Frozen Pool section of DobberHockey is one of the main reasons why people visit this site. Jason Arbuthnot has created a wide variety of tools to help you analyze, compare, and evaluate essentially anything relating to the world of hockey. One of the more popular tools has been the line combination chart, which gives the exact breakdown of forward lines and defensive pairings in all situations.

 

For example, a quick look at Mike Comrie's preseason statistics show that he played almost 50% of the time with Evgeni Malkin and Eric Tangradi (43.79%, to be precise). It is pretty clear to see how this tool can be useful, as quality of linemates is one of the most important factors when evaluating players in all fantasy hockey leagues (especially potential sleeper picks like Comrie).

 

As The Carpenters put it, we've only just begun. Read on to find out about the latest – and greatest – tool developed by Mr. Arbuthnot.

 

I am pleased to introduce the Fantasy Team Planner. This tool allows you to see the upcoming schedule for all 30 NHL clubs. Multiple timeframes are available (one day, three days, seven days, 14 days, and so on).

 

Click on any of the matchups, and you will be taken to an incredibly in-depth matchup preview. I clicked on Vancouver and Los Angeles, and was taken to the 'Tale of the Tape.' You are given team information, player information, and line combination information from both the previous three games the teams have played each other, as well as the previous three games they have played against all teams.

If you are a statistical junkie, this is GOLD. If you aren't, I bet you will become one very, very quickly.
