5 game zone exits report (with a poll question!!!!)

Here we go folk, your 5 game zone exit report.

The third column is the # of exit attempts the player had at even strength. The fifth column (# of successful) counts how many times the player was able to successfully get the puck out of the zone, while column 6 is the # of successful exits that were with possession (carrying and successful passes).

For more info on zone exits, read through an into article to zone exits articles.

So, what has the first 5 games taught us about the Flyers and their zone exits:

1) Jacub Voracek is awesome. He's been the Flyers best forward when exiting the zone

2) Nicklas Grossman, Adam Hall, Zac Rinaldo, and Scott Hartnell have some serious deficiencies in keeping possession on breakouts. Rinaldo truly is useless!!!!!

3) Among defensemen, Schenn, Kimmo, and Streit have been the best at keeping possession on breakouts and exiting the zone successfully

4) Girioux, for all his struggles, is still better in the D-zone than most Flyers forwards

I'll put a few more quick thoughts here.

Mezaros' performance, below average in both % of successful exits and % of exits with possession, is disheartening. He is supposed to be a puck moving defensemen, at least that's how I've always viewed him. If he can't accomplish this task at even strength, his value is decreased dramatically.

To give some love to Brayden Schenn (sorry Dangler), he has done decent enough in the defensive zone on exits, though he has not been the most active forward. However, he has performed above average both in % of successful exits and % of exits with possession.

In addition to Schenn, the whole 2nd line (Voracek, Vinny, and Schenn) have been very responsible in the defensive zone, with all having above average % of successful exits. Schenn and Voracek are both above average in % of exit with possession, while Vinny is just at about average for forwards at 50%.

Thanks for reading. Please respond to the poll (it will determine where I go from here in presenting this data).
