Hey everyone, We all know that the good old plus/minus is flawed. Most notably, it doesn’t take into account the quality of your teammates or that of the opposition. So here is my idea: why not use a Poisson regression? The Poisson regression is a special type of regression where the response variable is a count. For example, ecologists will model the number of fish in samples of a lake of varying volume, accounting for different characteristics of that volume, and actuaries will model the number of claims someone will make during a car insurance policy of varying duration accounting for different characteristics of the driver.
