Go look at a list of Corsi rankings and tell me if they correlate exactly to which player is better. They don't. They may in some instances, but they are not a definitive stat that can tell which player is better than another.

Hell, Justin Williams has a higher Corsi than Malkin, Thornton, Perry, Getzlaf—who would you rather have?
Are Malkin, Thornton, Perry or Getzlaf paid for their defensive acumen? I know it's not the be all, end all, but when you package a better corsi with a higher qual comp, fewer offensive zone starts, and more even strength offensive projection, the scales tip one way significantly.
