Honestly, either Sacco is the biggest moron in the National Hockey League or management told him he couldn't use Barrie.

Ignoring extremely small sample sizes (Van der Gulik and Malone) pretty much everyone ranks in Corsi where you'd expect them to be. No surprise who's at the very top in nearly every possession category, and who's at the bottom.

Even advanced stats shouldn't be treated as sacred, but I think Corsi is a decent bellwether of who's playing a good possession game for your club, and who's been an absolute disaster.
