If you watch enough hockey, the statistics become interesting background noise.
I agree which is why I said the last few seasons that PK had a number of holes in his D game. Many many times bad puck IQ for the smart D play. He played much much better this year. SO I will happily eat my plate of crow, but he did have holes regardless of his stats. He still has room for improvement, but that comes form experience. Subban was making mistakes last year that peewee kids no not to do. Like the very low % pass up the middle, he is better at it now, but you can't get away with that at the pro level, everyone knows about it and they study tapes on it. Price same deal. He could get away with some things in juniors that you just can't . There are far fewer passengers and fill in on regular pro roster than say juniors.
