In general, I feel fans tend to just want to have an opinion, no matter what. When they aren't able to see the players (and lets face it, the vast majority of posters don't even watch the CHL, let alone the more obscure leagues), numbers are all they have. And they just need to interpret them, even if deep down, most regulars know they should never do that
