Relative Scoring Chances per Salary Band Over Time Masterpost (Forwards)

And here’s another Salary Band post, comparing Relative Scoring Chances For % over time. Some teams have trends, some you can see have guys from ELCs move into big contracts, etc. Despite the emergence of analytics over the last few years, there hasn’t been much of a change in GM behavior from 2006 to now.

Here is the NHL Average chart:

All NHL SCF Rel Over Time - F

You are seeing more guys get moved into the 1.5-2m band, regardless of their SCF% relative to their team. This could be because the cap is inflating and players are being inflated along with it, or it could be because GMs are starting to value guys who “start” more in the Defensive Zone. There is some really excellent work being done on whether zone starts actually affect possesion the way most people have accepted that it does, with the conclusion being “effect is minimal”. (Click that link, it’s very interesting – thank you @ineffectivemath for bringing it to my attention).

This view is nice because it does allow you to pick out certain things on a team level you couldn’t before, such as changes in coaching or GMs.

Again there are some unanswered questions here:

1) We know how players ARE being paid, but what SHOULD they be paid?
2) Again, what about UFA/RFAs?

So presented without comment, here are all 30 teams in alphabetical order.
