I left objectivity out of this and concentrated only on the stats.
Notice to Internet Explorer Users
I started with players who have 30 pts this year.
I then removed any players with a +/- in the negative.
Then I whittled it down to players who play 20 min+ a game.
To be a great 2 way forward you have to play in all situations. So next players were eliminated with less than 1min/game on pk and 3 1/2min/game on pp.
I also figured that if they are playing pk they should be good at it. So I divided players ppga(power play goals against) by their minutes on pk/game. Anyone over a 5 was eliminated.
There were five left standing which I then ranked in each of these 6 categories. I added up the rankings and put them in order.
1. Sidney Crosby
2. Patrick Marleau
3. Mikko Koivu
4. Daniel Alfredsson
5. Derek Roy
Point leader - Crosby
+/- - Marleau
toi/g - Crosby
pk/g - Koivu
pp/g - Crosby
(ppga)/(pk/g) - Alfredsson
Any thoughts or arguments on who the best 2-way forwards in the game are?
