And the other four that you reference are not subjective in any way. They're all based on data coming out of games. Whether or not you're on the ice for an offensive or defensive zone faceoff is not subjective. Same goes for Corsi (on the ice for shots for or against), qualcomp (on the ice against certain players) or PDO (on the ice for shooting and save percentages).

Desjardins is simply using the game data compiled by the NHL to create these metrics.
Giveaways and takeaways are absolutely subjective... and I don't think he has a category for them, either. Just like he doesn't have a category for scoring chances, I don't think.
