Well, you're wrong. Meaningful relationships between Junior scoring and NHL success have been shown to exist (see link for one of many studies). You can get useful data from Junior. You're going to get varying results with any method for projecting future results. That goes for scouting analysis, stats analysis, or any combination of the two. That doesn't mean you're just as well throwing out all the data.

Wait so you discredit Gostisbehere because of his draft position & physical traits despite putting up good numbers in college but if I do the same with Cousins it doesn't count? I don't get it.

My personal opinion is that Cousins won't be anymore than a 30 point guy max in the NHL because of his limitations. I hope I'm wrong but I just don't see it.

I'm not buying your study here in the case of Cousins. Stats are half the battle.
