True. But also keep in mind that where we currently are with hockey metrics, baseball was behind that in the early 1980s.

I have a friend who, when we're climbing mountains, likes to ask "How do you eat an elephant?". Answer: "One bite at a time". If we try to eat the entire elephant all at once, we're never going to get anywhere.
