It can be mathematically modelled, but only to the same extent as, say, weather can. As previous posters noted, there are a lot of variables in hockey, more so than in say football or baseball. As research indicates which variables are more important and which are less, the value of relative statistics become clearer. But there is a lot of variability which is hard to break into discrete, measurable chunks, in my opinion.
