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.
Should have one person from each team record the stats and use the average as the official NHL stats. Some of the disparities (especially in real-time stats) are ridiculous.
