I don't think anyone thinks that. but it does tell us with reasonable reliability how much of a shooter, passer, or balanced scorer they are. My point is that most players could be passed off as balanced scorers if one was so inclined, leaving only the 10% at each fringe being described as "goals biased" or "assists biased" - basically I was saying it was a somewhat empty statement.
