Over at TSN they have decided to compile a meaningless stat (according to everyone over there) that makes the Islanders and the Chef look like the best defensively minded team in the NHL. We Have three forwards in the top 25 and SEVEN defensemen in the top 25 in take aways in the league. Now their may be some bias overall with the scorer, but I am curious what we would see if these numbers were further broken down. What would the percentage of take aways look like before and after the famous December 16th date. Since the Isles were tops among points in this period of time and became more of a complete team , I would say that most of these numbers increased during this time. Frans is Frans. Bailey, well now he can use this stat to pump his asking price. JT, just shows how Sneaky he can be and just be a great positional player making up for the lack of wheels. AMAC and Hammy would be no surprise either on Defense.
