Bonus Episode: Interview with Hockey Prospectus’s Ryan Wagman

October 30, 2014

Brian briefly reviews a copy of Hockey Prospectus 2014-15 (spoiler: very favourable), and talks with contributing writer Ryan Wagman about how he makes his fantasy hockey decisions.

We chat about fantasy hockey management styles, useful advanced stats (and a couple new ones, too), sophomore slumps, and the way that analytics may or may not change hockey's actual on-ice product.

Players discussed include Ales Hemsky, Tukka Rask, Nazem Kadri, Trevor Daley, Nick Bjugstad, Matt Moulson, Tomas Plekanec, Tomas Hertl, Matthew Nieto, Joe Thornton, and more.

Full disclosure: Hockey Prospectus provided us with a free copy of the guide for review.
