Chirps from Center Ice

A fan blog about the AHL's Wilkes-Barre / Scranton Penguins

If You Want Charts, You Got ‘Em!

Back with the chart refreshes. So let’s get right to them.

First, the Penguins big board through two rounds. Please click to enlarge for texture….


Kostopoulos, Zlobin, Kobasew, Sheary and Dumoulin at the top of this list. No surprise here. There are still players that I’d like to see some improvement from, Mikkelson, Harrington, Payerl to name three.

Here’s the point breakdown for Wilkes-Barre…


Sheary, Zlobin, Kobasew and Andrew Ebbett are a point a game or higher. If Ebbett gets back from injury, that will certainly boost Wilkes-Barre’s chances.

edit: I am wrong, and the chart is wrong. I forgot to add to the “games played” column for the players, so just disregard and move on. I will try and do better the next time…..

Alright. Now St. John’s through two rounds….


The most interesting thing here is that every player on this list has been on the ice for a pose relay goal scored against. It really spells out what Robin Short wrote for the St. John’s Telegram today, which is “success by committee.”

St. John’s point breakdown….


Twenty players with at least a point or more. The Penguins have more players (23) with a point or more.

I’ll continue to update these and create a head-to-head one once the series starts.

It’s setting up as an interesting series. I am going to be interested to see what the pundits say on the series and what the predictions are.

Speaking of prediction, I make mine in the Series Preview which is scheduled to hit the blog tomorrow at noon. I just have to write it now. Heh.

    I actually think this is a better Caps team then 2011-2012 team.

    A couple of points.

    Hutchinson >> Pasquale

    Pasquale ran hot or cold. When he let in one of his softies, it got to him. Hutch makes less mistakes, and does not let the softies get to him.

    Caps run the four lines more or less evenly, Devils/ Ads ran a shorter bench, got tired in the 3rd, when the Caps took advantage
