Just how much do you value stats?

Stats - my pet peeve.
When people cannot understand the game on the ice, they fall back on stats.
They are entirely useful, but so easy to use as a generalization and as a way to cover up a lack of understanding of the core fundamentals of the game.
I think certain stats are useful within context.
For example, for a defenseman know as a stopper.... I would like to see the following stats:
- -# and % of board battles won/lost
- pk % effectiveness
For an offensive D, I would like to see....
-# and % of successful breakouts.
-# and % of times he enters the offensive end and controls the puck
-# and % of successful carries through the neutral zone
For a powerforward...
-# and % of puck battles won
-# and % of territory battle wins in the crease
