Numbers Don't Lie

Recommended Posts

This article is an in depth comparison between my player, Trevor Van Lagen, and the 7 centres that were drafted ahead of me in this past draft.  All stats are updated as of 9:21am EST.


First there is a breakdown of each of the 8 players in comparison. The breakdown is explained like this:


Draft Pos. - Name - Team

Goals, Assists, Points, Shots, Hits

Total TPE

TPE earned per week to date

Skating, Strength, Puck Handling, Faceoffs, Passing, Scoring, Defence

Percentage of decisions that will be made (Scoring, Passing, Skating) grouped into three categories sorted by results of that decision - 80+ = Good , 60-79 = average , 40-59 = poor


Lastly, I break down how I rank in all the categories above and have separated them into three groups: Stats, TPE, Builds

I felt coming into the draft I wasn’t getting the hype my players deserved which is why I posted a few articles trying to hype me up and in the end I fell to the third round still.  It was my connections in Halifax that ended up getting me selected finally in the third round when @Advantage realized “Holy cow this guy is still available this late” and decided to trade up for me in order to not let that opportunity slip away.  


My player is clearly a top 4 Center in this draft and the numbers prove it. A few of the guys ahead of me got a boost from carry over TPE or heavy donations which is all fair game but it does take away from how committed I was to earning the max I could every week, something that isn’t going to stop.


For those drafted ahead of me, congrats! You all have put in the hard work and deserved this. 


To those that passed on me numerous times, suck it. I’m going to make you regret it.

@Beaviss I’d say you could definitely make a case for him to be a top 3 player anyways 


I did my homework he had top 2 highest TPE per week. Which is a large part of my drafting style.
