    how about hits as a stat categorie

    they are an official stat. it would make defenseman more valuable and add a different dimension to a team. you could go offensive with the point categories or tough with +/-, PIM and hits. anyone else think hits would be a good addition?

    • amen. +/- is not directly attributable to the individual player where as hits are. Hits gives the "Defensive" Defensman much more value. Hmmm Let me think who was the D man just inducted to the HOF known for hitting - oh yeah Scott Stevens - absolutely irreplaceable to the Devils in the 90's.

    • When I was setting up our league I was looking for "hits". We go head 2 head, and had just goals & assist. I wanted to add another catagory, but something different from scoring, otherwise it's just the same bunch of players(boring). I settled for "faceoff wins". Hits would be nice.

    • Hits makes more sense than PIMs.

      In live hockey (not fantasy) PIMs can kill your team.

      I have never understood why it is that PIMs is a positive stat in fantasy. It rewards the goon who skates slowly to his team's bench from the box after the other team scores the game winning goal because of his lazy defense or unresolved anger issues .
