No, Corsi is not an end all be all stat, and people who use it as such tarnish the credibility of it. Posters like Blue Blooded, however, know how to use that stat the way it should be used.

Should also mention that it seems NHL management figures are starting to use advanced statistics to assist with player evaluation. AV reportedly likes to use advanced statistics.
This is true. I just happen to think that Girardi is one of those players where Corsi, and other advanced stats, don't line up with what my eyes are telling me. People need to remember that these stats are correlative, not causative (not technical statistician terms, but you get the idea).
