Just in case anyone was confused with my liking of modern day Germany, this is the non-hockey portion of my room.

Anonymous said: you know that its actually not allowed to say "deutschland über alles"? because of ww2 and stuff it's not a good thing to say and there also was a part in the german national anthem that went something like "Deutschland Deutschland über alles, über alles auf der Welt" but it's also illegal now but some Nazis still sing it so idk you probably didn't mean it like that but yeah i hope you have a nice day tho

I know Germans no longer use the first stanza because of the Nazis interpretation of it. I’m actually a huge WWII buff and read a lot. That’s actually why I only quoted the first line and not the part where it talks about geography and the rest of the world. When I use the first line of the song I was referring to how the song was most commonly referred to in the 1800s when the lyrics were written. I was literally just using it as the song title. I understand that in Germany saying certain words might be banned, but as an American we have freedom of speech and I am distinctly not using it in the manner in which the Nazis were. I apologize if I offended anyone. I just want to make sure people know that I have a good knowledge of history and that’s why I was sure no to use the lines that the Nazis used to justify their horrendous acts. But regardless, I’ll take down the comment since it’s not a big deal. Thanks for being cool about it.

so crazy that the-crazy-canadian “ermahgerd advanced stats” is trying to argue how awesome Gibby is when his corsi was only 1.7

how do you explain that

was he just so cute that you forgot all about corsi??

His Corsi on ice was 1.78; his…

pricestreetbeachclub

I never sighted his Fenwick - i sighted his corsi relative which was ~6.5 one of the best on the team for guys who played 40+ games. And yes, absolutely his #s jumped because he was playing in the top 6 due to injuries, but as you clearly saw he has the speed and skill that would absolutely transcend onto the bottom 6 playing with sutter. You saw him in the playoffs, he excelled at the best time, and unfortunately got hurt.

I agree with you that Gibbons has a low ceiling, but having him on the bottom 6 would of been beneficial for the Penguins. His speed and skill reminded me of Tyler Kennedy circa 08/09. He was good on the PP2 and PK as well. 

Beau is unfortunately injured a lot, and in hockey having a bad wrist could be the end of you especially when you make your money as a sniper. I love Beau, he has amazing potential and I wish he could stay healthy. He will be on either Sids line or with Geno simply because of where he was drafted, and I’m ok with that. He needs to have his shot up on those lines and hopefully if he’s healthy he can show the brass he was the right choice. 

I never sighted his Fenwick - i sighted his corsi relative ” 

They are the EXACT SAME THING!!!! Fenwick is the more commonly used and original name because the stat was developed by Matt Fenwick.

The only decent forwards he beat out in Fenwick were Stempniak, Goc, and Sutter.  

"And yes, absolutely his #s jumped because he was playing in the top 6 due to injuries."

That’s not why his numbers from Corsi to Fenwick jumped.  His Corsi and Fenwick were both calculated playing with the same players, so the jump between the two stats has nothing to do with linemates. The number itself is reflective upon linemates, but not the difference in two stats that utilize the same metrics. My point was that the small jump from Corsi to Fenwick is negligible because nearly all players show this same characteristic. 

I definitely agree that Gibbons is fast, but he has stone hands. That’s why a guy like Josh Archibald could be a lot more effective. Even someone like Jean-Sebastien Dea. They’re both small which is their big drawback. Gibbons obviously has the same drawback. All three are fast. The difference is that Archibald and Dea have hands and Gibbons doesn’t.

His Corsi on ice was 1.78; his corsi relative was 6.5.image

Both are terrible numbers.  (To be fair, no one on the Pens this past season had impressive Corsi numbers.)  You brought up his Fenwick of 6.5 to show it’s higher than his Corsi, but for what point? All the difference in the two stats is showing is that he blocks more shots than he gets blocked. Also, it’s the norm for Fenwick to be higher than Corsi so I’m not really sure why you brought it up.  Both his Corsi and Fenwick number aren’t even half of linemates Crosby and Kunitz’s numbers. Obviously Gibbons isn’t on the level of Crosby and it would be a bit absurd to compare the two, but that’s the point.  Gibbons isn’t a bad hockey player, but has no where near the stat line to play on a line with that caliber of players.  Typically, a line will have very similar advanced stats, since they rely more on the team metrics instead of the individual. So when 1/3 of a line’s numbers are a significant drop from the other two, that has dead weight written all over it.  I know Bennett is a bit of a gamble, and in my opinion hasn’t proven enough at this point to earn a permanent place on the top line, but based on advanced stats he has the most potential to produce on that top line compared to other options for that spot (Hornqvist/Dupuis/Megna/etc).  As pittsburghpengwins said, Gibbons isn’t a bad player. I myself am a fan. But realistically, we don’t have a spot for him (not enough skill for the top line, not enough size for the bottom lines) and it would be a waste to spend another year in WBS when he can go elsewhere and get playing time in the NHL. Sure, I wouldn’t mind if he had stayed, but to say he is going to come back and burn us is a bit far-fetched. The potential ceiling is too low.
