I guess I will have to refocus most of my Cheek love on Schumacher. Another very impressive showing is Smith, especially with his borderline impossible 38.2% OZ start percentage.
In my primer last year I explained how to read the WOWYs. For convenience here is a screencap.
Meurs only played in one game (and the Rampage won the Corsi battle in that game) which is why everything is green for him. Schumacher-Henley have been linemates recently and they are at 57.1%. Please never break them up. Bourke was with them for awhile and was over 55% with both. Presumably, Bourke has been moved off that line in order to try to get others going (he was with Hishon and Bordeleau this morning).
Among the current defense pairs, only Siemens-Noreau is above 50%. I put Labrie with the defensemen, but he has played a decent amount of forward, so a decent amount of his results will be him as a Forward and a defenseman playing defense, which isn’t how I intended it. For example, Labrie is playing Left Wing, Siemens-Noreau are playing defense. This would end up being counted as one event Labrie-Siemens on defense and one with Labrie-Noreau.
11/17 vs Texas
This was easily the best game I’ve seen them play this year. They were completely dominant until they had a 4-0 lead. Corsi was 25-15 at that point, after which they sat back. Also, Texas kept throwing everything on net and the Rampage blocked most of the shot attempts from that point forward.
