Is It Time For the Wild To Tank?

Should the Minnesota Wild tank next year? If not now, when? The Wild had a 113-point season, a superstar performance in the playoffs, and still lost in the first round. So how is next year going to be better? What will they do with their roster with the upcoming cap situation?

A Look at the Probabilities for the New Jersey Devils Prospects

Outside of the Utica Comets and the World Hockey Championship, the 2021-22 season is now complete for the New Jersey Devils prospects. I wanted to take a look at how these players changed their NHL probabilities according to the Hockey Prospecting model from Byron Bader. The model includes over 5,000 players, including every skater drafted in the first 7 rounds of the draft from 1990 to present as well as stars from the 1980s. The model uses NHL Equivalencies from a player’s pre-draft year to their draft+3 season to project their chances of becoming a “Star” or “NHLer”. An NHLer is a player that reaches 200+ games. A Star is a forward that puts up 0.70+ career points per game or a defenseman with 0.45+ career points per game. The model also provides 5 player comparables for players based on their Star and NHLer probabilities.
