QoC and QoL (quality of teammates) are two highly flawed stats that are based on number of shots allowed and they don't take shot quality into consideration, some teams allow loads of shots, but the shot quality is poor and 2nd chances are limited (ie Caps in these past playoffs). What followers of Church of CORSI don't get is that hockey isn't baseball where you only depend on your own and pitchers/hitters performance.

Zone starts is another flawed stat that often gets missused because people don't understand that zone starts don't depend solely on a strenght/weaknees of a certain player but also on quality and skill sets of other players on the team and on strenghts of their partner/linemates. Perfect example to debunk this stat are last years Avs and their destribution of ice time amongst their defense.
