1) the article is only referring to QualComp related to shot-based metrics like Corsi/Fenwick. Goal-based metrics that incorporate shooting percentages are unaffected.
2) there is no adjustment for the fact that good players tend to play good players and bad players tend to play bad players, dragging everyone's statistical QualComp artificially towards the mean.*
*Similar to how the best faceoff men usually match up against each other since only some faceoffs are important - this drags faceoff numbers of the best faceoff men artificially towards 50%
