Dallas coach Lindy Ruff doesn't mind the use of advanced stats, but it won't stop him from reacting to what he sees during games based on his years of experience.
"I like looking at those numbers. I like looking at scoring chances. I like looking at our entries and the other team's entries," said Ruff. "There are a lot of things you look at after the game on the video to confirm what you've seen. But I also know that when I'm watching a game, I know a player's last five shifts and I know what he's been doing and I can assess quickly how I want to use him. Information is always good _ accurate information _ but I also know that watching the game and reacting to what's going on, it's tough to react in a timely manner and use information at a time when you might need it most. I think you have to have a combination of preparation with the information and then the ability to react during a game." Several NHL teams have talked openly about the use of analytics this off-season and its value to player assessment. Aug 4 - 11:29 AM
