What's with the hockey bloggers/analytics gurus getting hired by NHL teams? Read details below. Bloggers gettin' paid!?
Yesterday Tom Poraszke (who ran the site General Fanger which had salary cap hits and projections for each NHL team) was hired by the Las Vegas expansion team. In previous years, Tyler Dellow was hired by Edmonton, Vic Ferrari was hired by Washington, and Cam Charron was hired by Toronto (there are others but these were the 3 most high-profile sites; each ran an analytics-heavy website that was taken offline as a condition of hire).

Teams need info like this. They hire them and they've got a person who knows what and where to get this info.
