Statistics can be manipulated any way you want.
Cory (the scoring machine) Cross has 4 points in 8 games. Do you think he's going to get 40 points this year?.
Tommy Salo has a save percentage of .856 (what's with that anyway, .856 isn't a percentage but that's how the NHL reports it). Even worse, his 3.54 GAA, projected over an 80 game schedule is 283 goals against.
So far the Oilers have scored 22 goals in 8 games for a projected total of 220 for the season. Since Tommy doesn't play all the time extrapolation only yields 260 goals against.
Statistics sure are fun, and are equally meaningless.
