Worst 20 Raw Corsi Ratings

Like any stat you have to take it with a grain of salt, but I think this does reflect the inability of any of our lines besides our top 1 (maybe 2) lines to much of anything (scoring or defending).
Ignoring the writer's amateurish descriptions of Fowler (even if he was that bad, a professional journalist wouldn't describe him like that)... The long list of adjustments made to the stats tells me pretty much all I need to know about the trusworthiness of the metric. First you take the "raw Corsi rating" which I seem to involve shots against vs shots for while you're on and off the ice. As it is that's complicated and removed from actual defense enough. Then they need to adjust for team and zone?
