It is always difficult to tell if the Swiss NHL players are having a successful time in North America. Due to differing expectations on each of these Swiss players. We have found a way to bring these efforts into one ranking and have ranked the Swiss according to their post season 15/16. Three players have improved themselves in comparison to last season and the others are struggling. Who has improved compared to the past season?
The NLA Effort Ranking
We have compared the numbers from these six NHL players that have been playing last season and have set their current points scored in proportion to the points they have scored a year ago at the same time of the season.
|r.||Player||Points scored 16/17||compared to 15/16|
Unfortunately Luca Sbisa will need to catch up during the next few games with the Canucks as he only scored one assist until now. At least he has an even +/- stat at the moment, which is equally important for a defenceman. At the same time Mark Streit is playing his very best, as he scored 10 ten points (3 goals, 7 assists) during his first 16 games and this is a major improvement to last season! For Josi it is difficult to improve to his last season’s high of 61 points scored. He has scored 8 points so far, which is good, but not good enough for somebody like Roman Josi. But knowing Josi, he will improve!
