Red Wings Shootout Book

At a deep, dark moment of my life, I felt like it was a good idea to provide some empirical evidence for how much Jiri Hudler sucked in the shootout. Thus, the Book was born. What started as a one-year thing has turned into a shootout history for the franchise.

The stats and charts account for every single shootout attempt a Red Wing has ever taken.

The actual entries began in 2012. A link to every one is at the bottom of the page.  Anybody that becomes a semi-regular contributor will earn an entry into the The Book.

(NOTE: While I have stats from every shootout. I’m currently missing video from six five shootouts: March 25, 2006 vs. Columbus; April 3, 2006 @ Calgary; November 18, 2006 @ Edmonton; November 24, 2006 vs. St Louis; February 23, 2007 vs. Edmonton; and February 26, 2008 @ Edmonton. If you have video of these shootouts or stumble upon them on YouTube, send them to me.)

Daniel Alfredsson The Book On Daniel Alfresson: 2-for-8. “Alfredsson’s plan is pretty straight forward. He’s going to swing slightly to the left and look to shoot. The preferred spot is the top right corner over the goalie’s glove.”

 

BertuzziThe Book On Todd Bertuzzi: 12-for-34. “Bertuzzi is actually one of the more creative guys on the team… You can narrow down how Bertuzzi is going to start, either WAY wide … or down the middle at the pace of that old guy in the UP. You have no idea how he is going to finish.”

Datsyuk ShootoutThe Book On Pavel Datsyuk: 35-for-79. “For all the pub he gets for his “Datsyukian Dekes”, his shootout strategy is pretty predictable. He basically runs the triple option of the shootout. … Nearly all of Datsyuk’s approaches are the same…”

Capture The Book On Johan Franzen: 2-for-10. “Franzen opts for a quick wrist shot on his attempts more often than not, and when he does he likes to go to the top right. His typical attempt — half speed, straight on, pick the corner — isn’t a bad good strategy. He just can’t hit the net.”

tomas_tatar_detroit_011811 The Book on Tomas Tatar: 2-for-7. “At this point, the crowd has gotten in their cars to go home and Pierre McGuire has spent 15 minutes naming junior teams based in Manitoba. He’s also pretty close to the goalie. That’s when Tatar strikes.”

ZettebergThe Book On Henrik Zetterberg:  13-for-53. “Zetterberg is like that kid with ADHD who has a high-sugar lunch and comes into the next class trying to become the teacher’s pet. He can’t just do the assignment.”

 

Damien Brunner The Book On Damien Brunner: 2-for-7. “The first half of Brunner’s attempts are predictable. You’re kind of lulled into sleep with a half-speed attempt on goal, and then all of the sudden it’s like WA-BAM!” (R.I.P. Damien Brunner’s moves that were from us taken too soon.)

Filppula The Book On Valtteri Filppula: 2-for-10. “Filppula is going to go straight in with speed. He’s going to deke. He’ll end up on his forehand. …. Goalies can sit back in their net a little further and be a little more patient.” (R.I.P. Filppula’s shootout predictability)

 

HudlerThe Book On Jiri Hudler: 11-for-36. “The most consistent Hudler move is a couple stick-handles and a half-hearted fake shot before he pulls it in and fires a wrist shot. ” (R.I.P. Jiri Hudler’s  terrible moves in a Red Wings uniform)
