In almost every advanced stats for the last 3 years Burns is the better player, from defensive stats to shot contributions. He also puts up more points than Letang.
Burns is better at zone entries, breaks up more entries and gets more shots. Burns also has a better ozone entry percentage although he doesn't do it as much as Letang. That's for the last 3 yrs. Last year burns was a monster and has Letang beat in every advanced category except for amount of zone entries.
Wow, I actually didn’t pay much attention to those advanced metrics, thank you for educating me. Indeed Burns does get more zone entries and shot contributions, but we also have to keep in mind that he gets a lot more offensive zone starts than in his own end, which contributes to those superior stats. What about Burns and Parayko, who’s better?
