Does not mean he had to dump the puck in the corner instead of putting it in the net or that he is a crappy player.
I'm glad some people do understand it, that says enough.
The short handed goals suggest a high skill level that was where I was getting at, you can't arbitrarily remove numbers from players.
If such and such scores 60 percent of his goals in the first period, that doesn't make them any less valuable, or tell you anything about someones talent.
In another topic a poster railed on Etems vision, I went to their website and watched some of the game hi lites
the passes he's making don't seem to be that, of a player with poor vision
