PDO is not individual sh%, it is the 5 man unit's sh% while on the ice. Sure Kovalchuk and Stamkos's sh% are farily consistant. I have never seen someone use individual PDO ever, I didn't know it existed. PDO is something that needs to be taken in context. If a player plays in a defensive system it is flawed to look at sv% at all, stick to sh% as a 5 man unit.

Nobody is saying there is one super statistic. When I evaluate a player I take Zone starts, Corsi On, QOC Corsi, QOC team, Corsi Off, SH% ON, SV% ON, all into consideration
