I would say the Sharks of previous seasons are definitely reasons why shot differential is not an indicator of success. Even ignorning that, whenso many variables involved in a shot and quality is not one that can be quanified, then your constant use of shot differential as an argument gets tired sooner rather than later.
When you find stats to support your argument: "see look at all these advanced stats."
When you can't: "it's just bad/good luck."
Except that I provide evidence of the extent to which certain aspects of the game are influenced by luck. If you disagree, you should probably have some evidence to back up your assertions.
"Sharks of previous seasons are definitely reasons why shot differential is not an indicator of success"...sorry, what? The Sharks have won more games since the beginning of the 08-09 season than any other team in the NHL. If you can't even get facts as basic as your favorite team's record straight, there's no point discussing this further.
Also I hardly see how complaining about my responses to other people's posts is productive. You're free to use the ignore function or skip over my posts. I'm usually not the person starting these things, but I'm definitely going to respond to other people's arguments/attacks.
