Do The Thrashers Have Large Talons?

January Penalties Drawn

Here are the January penalties drawn that I promised to post. Holik was your leader with a strong 18 minutes and he has now taken the team lead ahead of Slater by just one minute. Vigier had a fantastic month drawing 12 minutes in limited ice time (and with limited footspeed I might add). After a great December Kovalchuk wnt back to drawing almost no power play minutes despite being one of the fastest players on the club.

Forward PP Minutes Drawn (Jan) PP Minutes Drawn (Season)
Holik 18 54
Slater 8 53
Hossa 8 52
Sim 4 48
Kozlov 10 47
Kovalchuk 8 38
Vigier 12 34
Metropolit 6 26
Rucchin 8 26
Larsen 2 20
Kapanen 0 16
Mellanby 0 14
Boulton 2 10
Krog 0 4




And you defensemen.

Defense PP Minutes Drawn (Jan) PP Minutes Drawn (Season)
de Vries 4 22
Hnidy 2 20
Havelid 4 20
Vishnevski 0 14
Exelby 2 10
Sutton 0 8
McCarthy 0 4
Popovic 0 2

While Holik leads the team in drawing penalties, he also takes a bunch and as you can see below he is only slightly positive on the season. Kozlov and Hossa are your leaders. Virtually tied headning into Feb.
Forwards PIM Drawn PIM Taken Net Difference
Kozlov 47 18 +29
Hossa 52 24 +28
Sim 48 30 +18
Vigier 34 20 +14
Rucchin 26 14 +12
Slater 53 44 +9
Metropolit 26 18 +8
Holik 54 48 +6
Larsen 20 26 +6
Boulton 10 8 +2
Krog 4 6 -2
Kapanen 16 22 -6
Kovalchuk 38 44 -6
Mellanby 14 26 -12

Not a whole lot of difference between the defensemen. I'm surprised Havelid isn't more minus considering the massive amount of minutes he plays.

Defense PIM Drawn PIM Taken Net Difference
Coburn 2 16 -14
Vishnevski 14 28 -14
de Vries 22 38 -16
Havelid 20 38 -18
Hnidy 20 40 -20
McCarthy 4 24 -20
Exelby 10 34 -24
Sutton 8 37 -29

  • If I may my dear Falconer, here are the net differential per 20 minutes of ice time:

    Forwards

    Sim 0.50
    Kozlov 0.47
    Vigier 0.45
    Hossa 0.43
    Slater 0.30
    Rucchin 0.28
    Metropolit 0.25
    Boulton 0.23
    Larsen 0.19
    Holik 0.12
    Krog 0.00
    Kovalchuk -0.09
    Kapanen -0.20
    Mellanby -0.34

    Mellanby and Kapanen are really horrible, not a good way for the captain to lead by example... Sim constant hustling really seems to pay off.

    Defensemen

    de Vries -0.24
    Havelid -0.26
    Vishnevski -0.27
    Hnidy -0.50
    McCarthy -0.62
    Sutton -0.80
    Exelby -0.80
    Coburn -0.83

    Sutton, no comment. Exelby is at least playing physical and I'd like to think his stats are improving after a bad start. Coburn is probably still young and thus makes too many mistakes.

  • I can excuse Mellanby becaue of his lack of speed. Anyone who hooks the Captain is just lazy.

    I think Kovalchuk's numbers are pretty amazing considering how "dynamic" he is supposed to be he sure doesn't cause the opposition to take very penalties.
