Stat 'O The Week - Time on Ice

Here's the latest little post idea I've been thinking about.  I've been wanting to jump into a little bit more detail on some some key statistics so I thought every week or so I would pick a different stat and have a look at the leaders, surprises and disappointments.

Today I'm looking at one of our favourite stats around here.  Time On Ice.  The more a player plays the more likely he is to score... makes sense doesn't it.

All of the stats are up to and included the games played on 08/11/10.
