Except statistical abnormalities getting removed is very relevant when it comes to a player's actual skill getting evaluated. If he had a couple of those games per season, or hell, during his career then yes they'd be relevant.

And yet he is Phoenix' first line center. No, he doesn't provide the points but he did let Vrbata and Whitney to it instead. Getting rid of him for a non-center only makes the problem worse.

Other teams/fans want to give up second/third line value for OUR top line center, so it simply will never work. Given our system, how effective Hanzal is in shutting down the top centers in our division, our lack of a true top line center and lack of any real depth at the position to speak of, trading Hanzal is tantamount to suicide if we aren't getting back what other teams would, rightfully from their standpoint of how their going to use Hanzal, consider massive overpayment based on how we have to use him.
Pretty much this, yeah.
