VERSUS Coach Comparison Tool
Use this tool to compare coaches side-by-side. The visual presentation aims to quickly focus your eye to the greatest differences between coaches and the same coach in different years!
There are only a handful of statistics presented here, however they are presented to you in various playing conditions; 5 vs 5, power play, penalty kill, leading and training. Each 'playing-condition' section cascades from critical to more critical; Corsi (shot attempts) to 'Scoring Chances' to 'High-Danger Chances'.
Each statistic, shown in numeric form, is accompanied by a bar which represents where the team ranks among all 31 teams. A longer, darker bar represents a high (better) rank. A short, lighter colour bar represents a low (poor) rank.
Each section, with the same cascade, is meant to help the reader quickly find the most important areas of information; and the 'butterfly' bar chart helps find the polar differences between teams.
Select coaches at top left and right to start your comparison. Buttons at bottom right allow for downloading an image of the comparison visual and sharing on social media.
