For example (and I'm using a hypothetical here), if Petruzalek had scored half his goals into empty nets, that wouldn't signify that he is necessarily a great offensive player, but his stats would look great
I assumed those sources were not factored in, good points though
I have not read anything regarding either player so my opinion is fully based on statistics and on what I know from draft time and the reports there
