I am one of those people who DO ascribe value, within context, to advanced stats. I think over the course of a significant amount of games, they can be genuinely useful and revealing.
But at this point they mean NOTHING.
Self admitted advanced stat nerd agreeing with TR. If you're going to use any advanced stats this early stick with Corsi. Malkin leads the entire team there, so I'm not worried about him. In the meantime, stay away from GF / GA numbers. They won't mean anything without a significant sample, and even the entire shortended season won't be enough to draw any significant conclusions. It's far too luck based.
