No one's trying to "predict" anything. No one would ever use a player's adjusted stats to predict what they will do in the future, and in the case of comparing it to players past, obviously you can't "predict" what Howe would do in 1998 or what Selanne would do in 1952, as those years are long past. Your entire case against adjusted stats all along has been based on straw men - making this about something it's not. Normalization, bell curves, and now predictions.
They are nothing more than a tool to help evaluate whether one player's production in one season is more, less, or about as impressive/statistically significant as another player's production in another season.
I feel for you; you have wasted a lot of time on this argument.
