The authors of Hockey Prospectus combine cutting-edge analytics and sharp wit to explain what happened last season, and look ahead to what you can expect in 2013-14 with the help of the exclusive VUKOTA projection system, Player Usage Charts, and insightful stats like Quality Starts, Goals Versus Threshold, Total Offense, and many others. You get everything you need to know about over 1,000 players, including the Top 100 NHL prospects. "As someone who spent 17 years in NHL front offices looking for insight, Hockey Prospectus consistently provides a unique 'peek behind the curtain' that gives a little more detail to the often fuzzy picture of evaluating players." -Frank Provenzano, former Assistant General Manager of the Dallas Stars and former Assistant Manager of the Washington Capitals "Measuring productive play within the NHL can be a complex task. Hockey Prospectus does an excellent job of distilling each player's performance on an annual basis." -Dan MacKinnon, Director of Player Personnel, Pittsburgh Penguins "One of the really great things about Twitter is being exposed to a wide variety of hockey opinion, insight, and information, and Corey Pronman provides plenty of all three with his excellent NHL prospect work at Hockey Prospectus." -Bob McKenzie, Hockey Insider, TSN Praise for previous editions: 'Stats are facts...In the long run they hardly ever lie. Thorough analytical work, like that done by Hockey Prospectus, is needed to make a proper evaluation of them." - Jarmo Kekalainen, General Manager of the Columbus Blue Jackets, and former Assistant General Manager and Director of Amateur Scouting of the St. Louis Blues "For those in hockey who think of numbers and stats as-at best-frenemies, it's time to change your tune and embrace them as full-fledged friends. Hockey Prospectus...is the perfect companion - full of smart, original thinking and analysis that leads to a more expansive and entertaining appreciation of the game. Prospectus provides puck perspective." - Steve Dryden, Senior Managing Editor, TSN "Whenever we need to break down the numbers, and delve into the story contained within the stats, The War Room goes directly to Hockey Prospectus for the final word on the subject." - Mick Kern, Host of The War Room on NHL Network Radio "Moneyball has become Moneypuck in this age of advanced analytics. Timo Seppa and company have been at the forefront of bringing this business trend to the NHL." - Rob Shaw, Head of Broadcast and Director of Content for Bloomberg Sports "If you want to know if your team is playoff bound or headed for an early spring, grab Hockey Prospectus...The advanced statistical analysis offers smart reasons why teams win and why they don't." - E.J. Hradek, Host for NHL Network and Senior Reporter at NHL.com "Timo Seppa has been predicting Stanley Cup Finals for three seasons on hockeyprospectus.com and he's nailed all three winners in the correct number of games [it's five years now]... For hockey fans that want sharp insight and analysis, Hockey Prospectus...should be required reading." - Scott Cullen, Columnist at TSN, specializing in power rankings, player rankings, analysis, and fantasy commentary "They're my go-to source for any NHL info. Nobody breaks it down better than Hockey Prospectus." - John DiTullio, host of The John DiTullio Show, 1280 WHTK & FM 107.3 Rochester's Sports Talk "Many outlets have good hockey coverage, but few consistently produce great unique content. Hockey Prospectus is in that elite class year after year. Everything I read from Hockey Prospectus leaves me thinking about hockey, a game I've known my entire life, in a totally different light." - Mike Colligan, NHL Analyst at TheHockeyWriters.com and Forbes.com SportsMoney
