I found this kind of interesting. Based on a very small sample, but might worth keeping an eye on.
New York seems to have gotten much better defensively, but also seem to be very opporunistic, scoring at an average level despite being the worst team at creating High Danger scoring chances 5v5.
Washington is hard to read - last year they were the worst team for trading chances 5v5, but they scored often and the PP was was top 10.
I am not big into stats, I was just looking at some Leaf comparisons and the NYI numbers caught my eye so I thought I paste it into here in case anyone has something to say.
With more team and a larger sample size, the numbers should firm up a bit, might be interesting to revisit later in the season.
