It is being done - and it will be done - differently in hockey than in baseball.
One thing that would need to be brought into the topic is who was on the ice at the time of the goal, puck control time and number of passes involved. Also, like in baseball. you would weigh goals different if you were facing the number 1 goalie or the backup. LA the weighing would not be that different. However on some teams when you have a huge difference in how good the goalie is would need to be factored into it.
