2015/16 cumulative net CHIP chart


Notes
  • Cap Hit of Injured Players (CHIP) represents the per-game cap charge of a player missing a game through injury/illness, i.e. annual cap charge divided by 82 (data from war-on-ice.com, generalfanager.com and capfriendly.com)
  • "net CHIP" represents the difference in CHIP between a team and its opponent for a single game - the chart above shows the cumulative differences over the whole season for each team
  • There will be inconsistency between my numbers and “official” team man-games lost (MGL) figures due to teams' different reporting standards
  • Injury absence data I have used comes from the player profile pages on tsn.ca
  • Figures generally exclude minor league players (at my subjective discretion) who are often on teams’ IR lists at the start of each season, but include anyone who gets injured while on the active roster during the season
  • Illnesses are included, but healthy scratches, suspensions, and absences due to “personal reasons” are excluded
  • Games missed by players still under contract but either officially “retired” or out indefinitely with no prospect of a return (Grant Clitsome, Ryane Clowe, Nathan Horton, Cody McCormick, Chris Phillips, Stephane Robidas, Marc Savard, Mattias Ohlund, Chris Pronger, Jesse Winchester) are excluded
