It is very unfair and look back at the situation that there coach, inevitably, put them and the "mathematically" decide if they succeeded or not. We have no clue of what there coach told them before the shift, ie "dump it every time and go lay a lick on someone"

The mathematical analysis of an almost strategical and emotional game has confused for a while.
Spot on. Good example would be Toews in last year's playoffs. To the stat obsessing fantasy crowd, he had a disappointing playoff run. To Joel Quenneville, he did everything that was asked of him.
