Toronto Maple Leafs 2014-15 Season in 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 premiumin a project like the Yearbook. I might try to do it with the remaining five teams .. we'll see. 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.
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.

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'.
