Habs top performers in playoffs (statistical representation)

Habs risk/reward numbers for playoffs

Using the formula I explained here , I crunched the Habs playoff numbers to see which players produced the top risk/reward numbers during the playoffs. I've also posted the regular season number for comparison's sake.

-The final risk reward number is the difference between positive events (successful puck-battles, passes etc.) and the negative events (lost puck-battles, incomplete passes etc.). Theoretically speaking, the higher the number the more a player helps a team.
