View Full Version : Stats & Records
I noticed on the Growl's website the other day that they have very extensive stats up for all seasons since 2003 and the Typhoon's site has pretty good stats as well, with most season included. It got me wondering, what exactly is the extent of statistics the league/teams have on file? I think this subject has been brought up before, but it'd be cool to be able to keep some form of records and things like that for future reference. So, when people are looking back on this league's beginnings a few years from now (when hopefully it's gone totally nationwide) there will be records of the 'early years' records to break and shoot for, whatever.
For example, Sean Sullivan's 92 points last season tied Brian Yingling's 92 of the year before and I looked back further to see if anyone had set a higher scoring total record but can't find recording of point totals for Vivona in '04 or Yingling again in '02. It'd be cool if we had all-time scoring leaders, single season records, etc. Just a thought.

That is the goal I believe but without Paid Statisticians it's kinda hard......

vivona had 122 points in '04: 31 goals, 70 assists, and 21 phantom assists :D i believe Ying had 136 in the first year of the league... i could be wrong.. but i know there were 6 players in that first season that scored 100 or more points

This is a delicate topic, but these stats do exist and we are trying to get them moved over. There are some complications that I am not at liberty to discuss. While I am aware of the problem, it does not concern me and there for I don't want to weigh in my opinion or worse open the topic up for mass discussion.
I am pretty sure that the scoring record is held by Brian Yingling during the 2002 season. However it is very tough to award anyone that title, since the first 3 seasons of the league each had a different amount of games. Not to mention that the league adopted the new double header format in 2005.
2002: 29 Game Season (4 x 12 min periods)
2003: 24 Game Season (4 x 12 min periods)
2004: 19 Game Season (4 x 12 min periods)
2005: 32 Game Season (2 x 12 min periods)
2006: 32 Game Season (2 x 12 min periods)
2007: 32 Game Season (2 x 12 min periods)
As you can see it is tough to compare Yinglings 130 pt season, Vivona's 122 pt season, with that of Sullivan or Yinglings performance in 05 & 06 because of the major difference in total minutes played.
Here is crossing our fingers that the information does become available. I'd be curious to see an all-time scoring leader board.
Yeah, there'd have to be a separation between those first few seasons and the 'new' era or whatever.
But I'd say Sullivan and Yingling's 92 points in the new era are greater definitely than Yingling's 136 in '02 since there was still almost 30 games in the season but games were twice as long. I think, though, assuming my math is right (probably not) 92 points in the present day format of 32 games with two 12 minute periods, would not translate to more than 122 in the format of 19 games with four 12 minute periods. So, Vivona's record would stand as the best. But I failed math in high school so who knows, I could be wrong.

Converting is actually pretty easy.
Just figure out the number of goals per 24-min game. Same as you figure out GAA for a goaltender.
To convert previous seasons of 4x12 to the current format, just divide by the # of games in a season times 2
Goals / (season games * 2)
Well, using that equation...
Yingling's 136 points in '02: 2.34 points per 24 min. game
Vivona's 122 points in '04: 3.21 points per 24 min. game
Sullivan and Yingling's 92 points in '05 & '06: 2.87 points per 24 min. game

interesting...PIHA made it into Wikipedia. My question: Where in the world did they get those Capacity numbers??!!?! :confused: I can see the 500 in Feasterville..cuz there are many bleacher seats, snack bar area, and tables. But 200 for The Growl's Voorhees location?? I pretty much assume they aren't counting SEATING capacity, because you'd be luck to fit 50 asses on those corner bleachers. And 1,000 for Marple. You may get 1,000 bodies in there....but half those people will be watchin the other rink.
Anyone else think those numbers are a little off? :cool:
