    The Frank J Selke Trophy is awarded annually to the NHL's forward who demonstrates the most skill in his defensive zone while also contributing to his team's offense regularly. The finalist have been selected based on the following criteria:
    • Overall Record
    • Strength of Schedule
    • Goals against average
    • Giveaways/Takeaways
    • Points per game
    • Faceoff Percentage
    • Plus/Minus
    To analyze the Strength of Schedule, instead of going with the traditional way and look at the records of the finalists versus playoffs, fringe and non playoffs teams, I decided to go deeper and looked at every line the finalists played and I ranked them in 4 different categories:
    • Elite Lines: Game 7 lines, very best lines in the league
    • Good Lines: Average 1st lines, Elite 2nd lines
    • Average Lines: Average 2nd lines, Good 3rd lines
    • Weak Lines: 3rd lines, Multiple ECUs lines


    1. [​IMG]R0tes (C)

    Overall Record: 23-3-2
    vs. Elite Lines: 1-2-0
    vs. Good Lines: 6-0-0
    vs. Average Lines: 8-1-1
    vs. Weak Lines: 8-0-1
    Goals against average: 1.79
    Giveaways/Takeaways: 253GA/108TA
    Points per game: 2.79
    Faceoff Percentage: 57.2%
    Plus/Minus: +48

    R0tes just had the best season of his LGHL career, The Toronto Maple Leafs AGM is nominated for 4 different awards and I wouldn't be surprised if he'd go and win atleast one of them. R0tes had the best offensive season for a center, playing most of his games with @detee ef, Norris finalist @Lauxey and fellow west coaster @johnwaynee90. It's going to be interesting to see if his 78 points and 2.34 GA/TA ratio are going to be enough to balance for the fact that he only played 9 Elite/Good Lines in 28 games this season.



    2. [​IMG]CaLL Me Jakoo (C)

    Overall Record: 24-2-2
    vs. Elite Lines: 1-1-1
    vs. Good Lines: 11-1-1
    vs. Average Lines: 4-0-0
    vs. Weak Lines: 8-0-0
    Goals against average: 1.46
    Giveaways/Takeaways: 375GA/78TA
    Points per game: 2.64
    Faceoff Percentage: 57.7%
    Plus/Minus: +54

    CaLL Me Jakoo has made a name for himself as one of the best defensive forwards in the game over the last few seasons, it's his third time being a finalist for this award in the past 4 seasons. He played on one of the better line in the league this season alongside @Girgss , @Odieeeeee and @x1x Datsyuk x3x and put up and imposing 24 wins in 28 games. Jakoo also played the most matches against Elite/Good lines compared to the others on this list with a total of 16 games (12-2-2).



    3. [​IMG]ThaiUp34535 (C)

    Overall Record: 21-4-2
    vs. Elite Lines: 4-1-0
    vs. Good Lines: 6-2-0
    vs. Average Lines: 5-0-2
    vs. Weak Lines: 6-1-0
    Goals against average: 1.63
    Giveaways/Takeaways: 305GA/75TA
    Points per game: 2.63
    Faceoff Percentage: 58.1%
    Plus/Minus: +47

    Jer Dubz has been a key part for his team all season long. The Boston Bruins owner seems to find success wherever he plays, from Left Defense to Left Wing and now as a Center. He had an impressive record of 10-3-0 versus Elite and Good Lines which gives him the second best W/L ratio against those lines among the finalists.



    4. [​IMG]mferra32 (C)

    Overall Record 21-5-0
    vs. Elite Lines: 3-2-0
    vs. Good Lines: 6-0-0
    vs. Average Lines: 9-3-0
    vs. Weak Lines: 3-0-0
    Goals against average: 1.46
    Giveaways/Takeaways: 340GA/87TA
    Points per game: 2.5
    Faceoff Percentage: 58.4%
    Plus/Minus: +34

    Over the past few seasons, mferra32 has been a very consistent center who's been able to produce both offensively and defensively. His 21 wins and 1.46 goals against average are very impressive when you take into account that he only played against 3 weak lines all season. mferra32 also has the best W/L ratio versus Elite and Good lines (9-2-0) among everyone on this list.



    5. [​IMG]rG Breezyy (C)

    Overall Record: 20-3-2
    vs. Elite Lines: 4-1-0
    vs. Good Lines: 3-1-1
    vs. Average Lines: 7-1-1
    vs. Weak Lines: 6-0-0
    Goals against average: 1.32
    Giveaways/Takeaways: 233GA/50TA
    Points per game: 2.16
    Faceoff Percentage: 51.4%
    Plus/Minus: +45

    Breezyy was apart of one of the biggest blockbuster trade before the start of the season. After leading the Avalanche last season, he was traded to Montreal alongside his forever linemate @Lorenzo x 24 and had an immediate impact with the Canadiens. rG Breezyy may not have had a spectacular offensive season like the others on here, but he leads the LGHL in goals against average for a forward with 1.32.

    Lines thing doesnt make sense at all. You can schedule yourself vs a playoff team but you cant force them to give you a good line

    We can break it down more into this. A couple of us made this argument in the committee chat as well bc like you said you can’t pick who the other team gives you at the beginning of the week when doing scheduling (although you can change it when you see the lines if you have the flexibility) Also, those line rankings are Arch’s opinions, how do you differentiate what he thinks it’s elite vs good game average vs “weak” as those are all his opinions.

    Would you rather we break it down like this? (I had arch run mine out of curiosity when he initially suggested it, as an example)

    Having a weak 3rd line from a playoff team in the same category as Anaheim's 1st line makes a lot of sense you're right. :map:
