1Note that we include goalies in our analysis.
2Fitted in R using the command fit>-glm(goals~XP, family=“binomial”).
3We used forward step-wise regression with the Bayes information criterion (BIC).
4This is the lowest possible budget from which lines can be formed satisfying (4).
5Sweater sales is another matter.
6We omitted goalie-skater and goalie-goalie interaction terms.
