2007-08 man games lost to injury
People really, really want this information out there.
Here are the final numbers as provided by NHL game reports on team's 82nd game of the season:
I'm going to try and do a more thorough analysis of these numbers in the off-season, something that weights the data a little to measure the severity of a team's losses.
For interest's sake, here's how the figures were calculated for the Islanders, who led the league in the category: Shawn Bates (79), Jon Sim (79), Aaron Johnson (37), Chris Campoli (35), Mike Sillinger (29), Andy Sutton (23), Brendan Witt (22), Bruno Gervais (20), Ruslan Fedotenko (15), Radek Martinek (13), Frans Nielsen (13), Others (37)
That's a lot of bodies, but it's probably fair to say other teams had more significant losses, if you know what I mean.
