He is tasked with providing thirty numerical attributes and bias ratings for National Hockey League, American Hockey League, and Canadian Hockey League players:
“I performance risk for range outcome predictions coupled with statistical principles to solve complex and practical problems. This allows a balance between the hockey player’s historical and current attributes and statistics, while providing a hockey player’s future performance projection to a 90% accuracy rate compared to real life.”
Using player attributes, based on approximately 12,000 variables from the players on the sixteen participating playoffs teams, Shane accurately predicted 63% of Stanley Cup finals results from 2010 to 2013, while also predicting the Stanley Cup winner twice during that period.
Shane’s expertise also transcends the virtual.
