Somewhat true though I don't give them the same weight because they are a much smaller % of a players ice time and overall goals scored. Most of the play and points come from Even Strength but that doesn't mean that you should ignore the powerplay numbers right?

Yes, and that is why I use the rate stats instead of raw numbers.

I shouldn't have opened this can of worms since I don't have the time or all the data I need to explain everything and bring it into the public to be scrutinized. Maybe someday.
