These advance stats that people are trying make work the same way it does in baseball is just not smart.

So what does that mean does it mean he is a bad D cause they have lots of shots on goal when he is on the ice.

Too hard to use analytic stats like Sabremetrics to judge a player.

So they have most shots against maybe

- because he plays 25 mins a night against other teams top line.
- Where are the shots coming from? Outside and non threatening scoring chances?
- Who else is on the ice with him maybe he plays with a bad partner or the line gets beat in the defensive zone which results in more shots and not Murray's fault.

Nothing against the poster just passing along info but these advance stats people are starting to quote just don't reflect a player and game situations especially when hockey is a game played by 5 teamates on the ice and not a 1 on 1 situation like in baseball.
