'Dominating' without producing goals or assists. That's a new one. I suggest you look at Jaques Lemaire clips for a while.
It's about differentiating between the method and the effect. Reality is stochastic. The best we can generally do is develop trends: what things will lead to success more often than failure. Points are simply the most incomplete way of establishing this trend. So, I'd rather see Gally work his balls off, and have Boucher, Sarault et al. whiff on 5 beautiful chances created by Galchenyuk, than see Galchenyuk get a goal from a deflection off his ass.
