Year-to-Date Callups

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I was curious on the number of year-to-date callups by team so I pulled the Transaction Log and sliced and diced the numbers.

Here are the number of players by team who were called up and haven't returned.  The numbers do not include any players who were called up and have returned to the team.

TEAM Current Callups Who Haven't Returned
Pensacola              9
Macon               7
Peoria              5
Roanoke              5
Evansville              5
Fayetteville              4
Mississippi               4
Birmingham              3
Knoxville              2
Huntsville              1

And the #1, #2 and #4 teams in the standings have registered the largest number of call-ups.  Makes it kinda hard for fans of the rest to argue that player promotions are to blame for their struggles so far.  :popcorn:

Fun numbers, but Evansville should be 5.

Deresky, Brodeur, Leef, Thompson, and Macdonald. 

 

No doubt losing players is disruptive, but it's a way of life in a "development" league. The challenge is establishing a nucleus and depth of talent so that you can afford to replace them without a significant difference.

Unless the issue is with a team's best players being stuck in a revolving door of getting called up and sent back and called up again - which this list doesn't reflect.

I could see a new coach making the mistake of training his team around a core of specific players. (from the Devil's Advocate perspective)

You are correct - the cold weather has obviously affected my ability to count.

I corrected it.

But I guess your team doesn't have to worry about that.  :P

It's not a "stuck in a revolving door" situation if a player is allowed to sit 'n' rest awhile with the higher-level club.  That's more like being in hockey timeout.

Melkert called up, and Bolts up to 6 people. I wonder if there's an easy way to pull out a "number of days missed" stat that might be even more telling.

For what it's worth, I did a quick pull of the data from SPHL transactions, and filtered out all the returned. I noticed one error in their data and removed it, but there's always the chance for more. Shamelessly stealing RH's original table with updated #s:

TEAM Current Callups Who Haven't Returned (2/20)
Pensacola              11
Macon               9
Mississippi              8
Peoria             7
Evansville              7
Fayetteville              7
Roanoke             6
Knoxville             6
Birmingham              5
Huntsville              4

Obviously, just the current number of callups doesn't tell the whole story, but it's interesting nonetheless. ECHL apparently likes a lot of what they're seeing from the SPHL guys this year.

 

Update:

I couldn't help myself, and I totaled up the number of days a player has been with an ECHL team totaled for each SPHL. I used SinBin callup page to derive the results. Know that I didn't correct for trades, I think there were only a couple effected players anyway.

  1. Pensacola - 692
  2. Evansville - 526
  3. Fayetteville - 482
  4. Peoria - 462
  5. Macon - 459
  6. Mississippi - 386
  7. Roanoke - 323
  8. Birmingham - 278
  9. Knoxville - 274
  10. Huntsville - 165

Digging just a bit further, I broke out each person who was gone for 60+ days (sorry I haven't combined multiple trips - ostensibly I have a job to do).

Connor Reilly (RW) Birmingham 89
John Rey (D) Birmingham 73
Jeremy Brodeur (G) Evansville 119
Jackson Leef (C) Evansville 66
Blake Thompson (D) Evansville 100
Justin MacDonald (LW) Evansville 73
Tyler Deresky (RW) Evansville 65

It'll be interesting to see where things fall with the ECHL reassignment and trade deadlines coming up the first full week of March (7,8). Seventy guys from SPHL teams currently make up the ECHL rosters. There were a couple changes since I posted, but they netted out that number. Milan(PEN) back and Mitchell (EVN) up.

 

FWIW - SPHL deadline for trades is next Monday.
