There's definitely a role for advanced stats in today's NHL. However, I also feel as though lots of people put way too much emphasis on them when it comes to analysing players and performance.

What bothers me about advanced stats, is fans who understand them and interpret them acting like they are better, more superior fans than anyone else.

I've lost track of the number of times I've offered an opinion on a player here, or on twitter, and have had someone throw back some convoluted advanced stat concoction in my face in a real matter-of-fact way
