The advanced statistics continue to overrate Mitchell's puck possession. Yes, he possesses the puck. What else does he do? Nothing. The only way his season was under the radar is if you think hockey metrics are as advanced as SABR.
Advanced hockey stats are nowhere near as legitimate or effective as baseball Sabremetrics right now. Sorry, but it's true. We already know that Mitchell can possess the puck.
I mean, I don't understand how you can legitimately argue Mitchell brought more to the team than Fedotenko based on his "puck possession" skills.
