Crew NPG+A Leaders

Here's a look at Crew Non-Penalty Goals + Assists (NPG+A) per 90 minutes played since 2008. If you want an interactive version to click around on, head over HERE.

Not terribly much to say there about this straight forward metric. Scoring. Assisting. Minutes played. Goals create memories for most fans and memorable players float to the top of this measurement. Easy to see that the more you play the less of the scoring and assisting you do per 90 minutes. It's hard! Which is why the guys that can do it get paid.

The game is certainly moving on from merely searching for players that top this metric, but this scoring and assisting thing... it likes to stick around. I make picture.
