When The Goals Go In The Other Net

Mirtle's got a post up taking a look at who's been on the ice for the most goals against per sixty minutes of even strength ice time (GAON/60) but the flip side of the coin, of course, is who's been on the ice for the most goals for per sixty minutes of even strength ice time (GFON/60), and towards the top of the list we find some very familiar names:
(Top 20, minimum four games played; stats via Behind The Net)
Given the Caps' strong play at even strength so far this season (with the exception of the top line), it's not surprising to see a bunch of D.C. boys high on this list (Alex Semin, by the way, leads the League in even strength points). It is worth noting, however, that Brooks Laich quite nearly makes Mirtle's list for highest GAON/60.

Also, Brian Sutherby? Really?

I was going to ask that question about George Parros. Makes me think that it's still a wee bit early to make these assessments.

Indeed.

And were you to accuse me of throwing this post together simply to test out embedding a Google Spreadsheet in a post, I'd be largely defenseless.
