I made a matrix you can use to explore the Leafs' 2012-2013 WOWY Corsi For percentages. I'm unable to embed the page in here, so you'll have to follow this link.
Some notes on using it:
- Only players with 300 minutes of 5v5 ice time are displayed.
- The rows and columns are initially sorted by 5v5 ice time. You can drag-and-drop to reorder the rows and columns.
- You can use the slider at the bottom-right to filter the pairings by ice time. You can use this to find the most frequent partners for a particular player.
- Hover on a cell to see exact values.
- Data comes from stats.hockeyanalysis.com.
Some points I noticed (it's been a while since the season ended, so I've probably forgotten the reasons behind some of these):
- Bozak, Kessel, and JVR all had noticeably higher CF% values playing away from Phaneuf. This might reflect the trouble they had facing opponent's top lines.
- Bozak, Kessel, and JVR played almost exclusively with each other 5v5, but Bozak's CF% dropped by a pretty large amount without Kessel.
- All of McClement's partners have noticeably higher CF% values without him. It might be a result of his checking role, but the size and consistency of the differences are kind of worrying.
- Grabovski's most common line mates were Kulemin and McClement and his CF% was better away from them. Kulemin and McClement were also worse off without Grabovski.
It'd be cool to hear what you find out from this (if anything). If there are any WOWY comparisons that you want to explore but can't, let me know and I can try improving it.
