Fun read from The Athletic.
They got Frank Provenzano (former NHL team exec) to pen "letters" to everyone involved in training camp. https://theathletic.com/103855/2017/09/ ... ing-camps/
They're funny and even a little insightful. But this was my favorite:
"Dear Analytics Fan Guy,
Please stop sending me detailed formulae that factor in the rate of appreciation of the housing market with projected hair loss to show me that the anticipated turn ratio of Player X will lead to a 1.5 percent increase in uncontested zone entries at even strength adjusted for score effects. Unless it’s insight that projects actual value, coming up with a complicated way to say something that is either already obvious or doesn’t really have any context is a waste of everyone’s time. Including yours."
