I don't think the NHL sees any profit in changing.
Internal individual team stats pre date NHL stats. Goes back to the origins of hockey.
NHL league stats are an attempt at standardization.Regardless of how, by whom or were they are tracked, the NHL stats can never reflect a team's game plan going in. Only the internal team stats can reflect the game plan going in.
So there will always be gaps between the league and individual team stats.
