I mean, that's the only conclusion I can come up with when it seems much more rational and correct to me, to keep and use both at various weights.
Don't let "perfect" be the enemy of "good".

We're never going to get a perfect measure of a hockey player's contribution to games. It can't even be done in baseball, which is a game of discrete events. That doesn't mean that we shouldn't try to account for what we can account for.
