Its kind of the problem with advanced stats in hockey. Stats is stats and they can reflect all kind of things. But the degrees are diffrent.

I mean, if you have a player who is a great sniper but had skater and in general a below avg puck possession player -- what would his stats show? One would expect that teams only would be interested in him if they could play him with center that is an excellent puck possession player. Right? It feels like a player like that could play on 5 teams over 15 years, with stats showing the said player as someone who is quite good at other things than putting the puck in the net.
