Luck or because of how he plays? His QOC is smaller, so that would be a reason why his offensive game is good. I hate when luck is used as an actual statistic.
An example is when a goalie doesnt make a save. Was he unlucky or was he just outskilled by the other player? My engineering/scientific side says outskilled by factual contents.
But since we are talking about luck, is Carle's bad corsi/sv% due to being unlucky or because his skill defensively isnt too good? See where Im getting at? I think in this case, his high sv% and sh% is due to his skill (and in cases who he faces and plays with) instead of "magic" or luck.
