The first review of our book is up, “Hockey Prospectus 2013: A Must-Read”, thanks to the folks at Washington Capitals’ site Japer’s Rink.
“As is the case in any situation that pits one extreme minority against the other…there is a large middle ground consisting of those who understand and appreciate both sides and apply both approaches to their analysis - and appreciation - of hockey. And that’s where Hockey Prospectus comes in. Grounded in sabermetrics, Hockey Prospectus presents an in-depth look at the past NHL season with an eye on the season ahead, and does so in an accessible way for even the most mathematically-challenged fan.”
Read the full review here.
I will be appearing on NHL Network Radio’s The War Room on Tuesday morning, September 24, with host Mick Kern, for a full hour (11:00-12:00), to preview the start of the season. XM Channel 92.
A few of our other writers have radio hits lined up, but I don’t have the details yet - I’ll update here later.
And Matthew Coller and I will fire up some version of Hockey Prospectus Radio soon.
The VUKOTA spreadsheet is available for download now ($3.99). This is primarily for folks that want to utilize the projections (that are all included in the book) in a spreadsheet format to help out with their fantasy hockey drafts. Click here to download.
As far as the print version, my best guess is that it will be available on Monday or Tuesday from Amazon. I’ll update that as well.
