Some Interesting PIM Data
I've been farting around with some PIM data (what better way to burn some Sunday morning hours?) to try and develop a "pest" statistic (forthcoming) and I noticed something pretty impressive about Byron Bitz. And I don't mean his name.
Bitz, recently dealt to the Florida Panthers along with Craig Weller for Dennis Seidenberg and Matthew Bartkowski (no offense Panthers, but it's a bit of a rip-off), has played 46 games, 23 of which were played away from home. He's amassed 31 penalty minutes, with 6 of those minutes from minor penalties. All 31 minutes were committed during away games. This includes 5 fights, and all the fights were in different games, against different teams, and against different players. So in Bitz's case, he gets a bit randy when the boys are outta town.
