To the replies above:

I'm not saying that these statistics are meaningless, I am just surprised people are so quick to write players off given a statistic that doesn't tell the whole story, or even come close.

Would you all not agree that there may be varying degrees in quality of scoring chances? For example, the Sedin's play a very patient game and the majority of their chances are of AAA quality. Whereas Booth, who may shoot a lot within the 'home plate' area, has very little chance of converting most of these plays.

While this is certainly a stat that may be useful to look at, the degree in which people are condemning players or praising others is pretty naive IMO.
