Your benevolent overlord Eric T. recently helped me out with a little study I was doing (What a nice guy, eh?), and in repayment, I promised to do a bit of work on his (and your) beloved Flyers. Since my study involved shot location, I decided that doing a bit of similar work for this team would be fitting.
What I've done is to plot every shot taken by the Flyers on the road, and at 5-on-5 for the entire 2010-11 season. Home games are excluded to alleviate the effects of a particular scorer's bias, and power play and shorthanded shots are excluded because of how they disrupt the normal flow of a game, and thus skew the locations of shots.
A good thing to keep in mind when viewing these charts is Gabriel Desjardins' graph (full article here) that shows how scoring chances improve at different points on the ice:
This kind of study helps us understand how each individual player approaches their respective positions differently (or similarly) to other players on the team. One advantage this kind of visually-based analysis is that, although it is maybe less precise, it requires no understanding of math, and it's easy to understand something new about a player with just a glance at the way their shots are distributed. Read on for more.
If you're interested to compare these with the charts that I made for the Leafs, check out the article I did over at Pension Plan Puppets. It also has more of Kris Versteeg's shot info for your viewing pleasure. Follow me on Twitter at @JPNikota
