Can't account for system differences, situational differences (playing with the lead vs protecting one) or likely even positional differences between forwards. These measurements are never very meaningful. I think trying to boil hockey down to 1 rating is missing the point. In baseball, every pitch may as well be an entire game, statistically speaking, so numbers work well. Hockey is much too fluid for accurate or all-encompassing numbers.
