About Bob-O

I began watching the Rangers in 1990 when I was 9 years old. Soon after a lifelong friend of mine introduced me to playing the game itself. I started with roller skating and then moved on to ice hockey. Concussions on and off the ice forced me to quit playing competitively although I coached a few midget teams throughout NY City. I enjoy studying the game and it's evolution. The major change in todays game involves possession and advanced statistics. In my estimate you cannot form a truthful opinion of a player or team without first looking over stats in these catagories such as zone starts, Corsi/Fenwick(Close), Quality of Competition(QoC), and PDO (AKA Puck Luck) while that player or team is on the ice.
