Giveaway and Takeaway statistics for NHL teams
This page puts the statistics of takeaways and giveaways committed by teams as a measurement of their defensive and offensive qualities. We group giveaways in defensive zone and takeaways in offensive zone as a defensive lapse, and giveaways in offensive zone and takeaways in defensive zone as an offensive lapse. We present these statistics per team on defense or on attack.
We are aware that the Giveaway/Takeaway statistics' precision is somewhat shaky on the definition level. The tables below smell of Arena bias. We also discard all such events happening in the neutral zone (about 10% of the giveaways and about 18% of the takeaways).
