Wednesday afternoon notes: Mike Fisher goes back to Ottawa

Our afternoon hockey notes have a little bit of everything in them today. We have Mike Fisher preparing for a visit to Ottawa, where he spent his first 11 years as an NHL player, another league-wide poll which lands a Predator at the top of the list, and as always, a dose of hockey stats stuff...

Around the Wide Wide World of Hockey

Red Light - Posts Stats the NHL ought to keep
Many of the proposals Stu makes are possible with info we have today. I know I've written about who draws penalties, the finer details of faceoff performance, shots that ring off the posts, and who misses the net or has their shot blocked more often. Getting the NHL to incorporate such info into their regular reporting would be wonderful. What I'd really like, as well? Rebound information!
