Best of Both Worlds: A Statistical Look at the WW, Ferris, Brewski* Trade

Watching the games, it seems there's a general consensus that, at this point anyway, the Avalanche made a good decision in shipping off Wojtek Wolski for Peter Mueller and Kevin Porter (aka, Brewski because the title needed a snappy nickname and I couldn't think of a better one.)  I thought I would take a look at the stats to see if what we're seeing and the quick glances at the points since the trade support that consensus.

Wojtek Wolski

Avalanche G A P +/- GP PPG
17 30 47 15 62 0.75
Coyotes G A P +/- GP PPG
4 5 9 5 11 0.82

 


Peter Mueller

Avalanche G A P +/- GP PPG
5 10 15 5 11 1.36
Coyotes G A P +/- GP PPG
4 13 17 -5 54 0.31

 

 

Kevin Porter

Avalanche G A P +/- GP PPG
0 1 1 0 7 0.14
Coyotes G A P +/- GP PPG
0 0 0 1 14 0.00

 


Okay, so looking at the stats, we see some basic things.  Mueller is doing better than Wolski since the trade.  We know they used to be pretty neck-and-neck, so it seems the Baron's inconsistency is striking once again while Ferris's sulking has yet to hit. (To be fair, Wolski is still almost a point-per-game player and doing well for the 'Yotes.) Porter hasn't really done much either way although I think he's shown some serious glimmer of good things to come. 

What I'd like to do, however, is to twist those numbers to show you something really cool:  if you add up all three players' stats during their stints with each team, you'll see the Avs definitely got the better of this trade for this season.

 

Team Totals

Avalanche G A P +/- GP PPG
22 41 63 20 80 0.79
Coyotes G A P +/- GP PPG
8 18 36 1 69 0.52

 



So basically what I'm saying is this: no matter what happens next season (like WW demanding a huge salary that we all know he's not question if he's really worth), the Avs milked this cow for all it was worth this year and got the best end of the deal.  For the 2009-2010 season, the Colorado Avalanche definitely came out winners at the trade deadline.
