2013/14 team injury breakdowns

  • Cap Hit of Injured Players (CHIP) represents the per-game cap charge of a player missing a game through injury/illness, i.e. annual cap charge divided by 82 (as per the former
  • There will be inconsistency between my numbers and “official” team man-games lost (MGL) figures due to teams' different reporting standards
  • Injury absence data I have used comes from the player profile pages on
  • Figures generally exclude minor league players (at my subjective discretion) who are often on teams’ IR lists at the start of each season, but include anyone who gets injured while on the active roster during the season
  • Illnesses are included, but healthy scratches, suspensions, and absences due to “personal reasons” are excluded
  • Games missed by “retired” players still under contract (Sheldon Souray, Marc Savard, Mattias Ohlund, Brian Lee, Joni Pitkanen, Chris Pronger, Tomas Vokoun - all missed the whole year and have not played since, even if informal retirement had not been acknowledged at the time) are included in team breakdowns, but are separately visible and they are excluded from team comparison charts
  • Team possession data comes from (with the exception of the replayed Dallas-Columbus game following Rich Peverley's illness, which appears to be missing from their data)
