So yeah, as the article says, it's not a silver bullet and needs to be taken in context. I'd say he is an outlier.
it is adjusted by the number of offensive or defensive starts, they count that in, also there is a relative number that takes into consideration a quality of the opponents that one player is up against while on ice, in other words, Brandon Sutter and mat Cooke although with the worst offensive Corsi number, get bounce back because the opposing five they face have very high Corsi number, quite complicated but IMO it can show some real trends in development of a player...
and yes its only 5 on 5
