A new stat for fantasy hockey??
I know a lot of leagues are trying to steer themselves away from PIMs as part of their league scoring cats and going more with Hits. Not sure if Fantrax or other fantasy hockey sites are already tracking this stat but I have noticed that Yahoo has been tracking Penalties drawn in their box scores. By trying to add realism to your league I believe this stat would be an effective stat category to replace PIM. Not sure if Yahoo plans to introduce this any time soon but I'm sure it wouldn't be hard since they are tracking it at a game by game basis.
However I'm not sure if penalties drawn are tracked perfectly or not on Yahoo but would like to hear what others think of this. If another site already tracks this I would be interested to hear how accurately it is tracked as well as I would like to add it as a category in one of my leagues.
