I don't know who Scott Cullen is, but I doubt I'll be reading anything by him every again.
Yea measuring something that's "intangible" seems scientifically impossible, but I wasn't a science major so what do I know.

Anyway using blocked shots in the formula overvalue defenseman and anyone on a bad team... using turnovers overvalue defenseman compared to forwards... using faceoffs undervalues anyone playing center and wearing a rangers jersey.

Not surprised that Callahan and Girardi are high on a list like this, but this list and the formula used to create it are garbage.
