2023 World Juniors

Alex and Chace are back with another week of content! Today, they start off by taking a look at a hit to the head that happened in the 2023 World Juniors game between Canada and Czechia. Alex wants to know why the NHL doesn’t have more serious hit-to-the-head rules. As well as highlighting his idea of a mix between how serious the IIHF takes it and how unserious the NHL seems to take it. They also discuss the 2023 World Juniors as a whole.

From there, they take a look at a great mailbag question when it comes to increased scoring, especially on the powerplay, and has it been factored in enough to analytical models and analysis? The guys give their thoughts on that topic and go back and forth. Finally, they discuss if NHL betting will ever reach NFL levels when it comes to analytics. A discussion that was spawned thanks to their sponsors at BetStamp!
