Like pretty much any stat, you can take them out of context of other related stats. And they are statistics; They dont predict the future, but tell you about the past.

I like the sabremetric stuff but it should not be a major discussion point in hockey. Understanding how plays develop and how a player is supposed to make a decision is more interesting and useful to understand. That is scouting and coaching mostly. Stats are quantifications of that.
