Minnesota Wild 2014-15 Season in Charts

For the Toronto Maple Leafs charts:

Instead of flooding twitter timelines with a bunch of charts and graphs I decided to throw these all into one handy location. I should have done this for all the teams I've written up already but time is a premium in a project like the Yearbook.

These are the preliminary charts I gather for each team before getting into each individual player (and before any video). These are starting points not end results. The full blown analysis that these jump off into will be within the pages of the Yearbook.

This doesn't happen without the sites for this data:

War On Ice Hockey Analysis and Behind The Net

The charts and graphs here are fairly self-explanatory, with some exceptions. Let's start here with PDO components, special teams and shot attempt metrics. This first one is PDO components at the player level. Bubble size is TOI/60.

Differential Charts

Differential charts outline last season's production in relation to 1 year ago and a rolling 3 years.
With data from I divided 2014-15 season into 2013-14 season to produce a differential. Players matching in both seasons production would receive a value = 1 which is also why the charts axes cross there.
Results greater than 1 signify outperforming the 1 year rate.
Results less than 1 means indicate underperforming their 1 year rate.
The 3 year results have a little twist.
There are two values:
-- 3-years ending 2014-15 (seasons of '12-13 thru to '14-15)
-- 3 year rate ending 2013-14 (seasons '11-12 ending '13-14).
The 3 year rate ending last season divided by the 3 year rate entering last season.
This ensures last season's rates don't influence medium term trends essentially isolating '14-15.
Divergent and scattered 1-yr rate differentials seemingly encase 3 year differentials as the latter converge closer to the middle, with players falling into career norms.
I called these relative differentials so on the charts you'll see 'rel'.
Bubble size is Pts/60

I like looking at time between events for clues.

I've also included some special teams and situational goals.
