Little did I know they were similar to existing website names. The other ideas that I had clearly illustrated my lack of creativity in word-related endeavors... I studied mathematics for a reason. So I polled some friends, who were much more creative than me.
Friend and spades/bridge partner Matthew T. Sitomer came up with my favorite, Greater Than Plus Minus. GTPM has three properties that I was looking for:
- A pun, play on words, or something else mildly (or tremendously) amusing.
- Some sort of reference to hockey/goals/shots/dekes/goons/etc.
- Some sort of reference to math/stats/analysis/analytics/
Since a lot of hockey analysis centers around developing statistics that are similar to plus-minus, but better than plus-minus in some way (like, for example, Adjusted Plus-Minus), the named seemed appropriate.
Many thanks to Sito, Schwooz, Saldog, and Todd for their ideas.
