There are lots of things wrong with the NHL records.
John Jr. Hanna received a pension payout for playing in 200 games. The record shows him with only 198 games played.
The Rangers platooned Henry and Rayner at least 4 times in 1945-46, but the record shows them as only splitting one game.
I don't recall which 30s Ranger it was but he was dressed for 15 games as a call up but never actually played. You can find older records where he has no GP for that season, but the last time I looked at the "official records" he was credited with 15 GP that season.
The 3 games Sprague Cleghorn played with Ottawa in 20-21, before his departure and feud with the team are not included in his official record.
