Even going back and examining the tape of every goal would never be conclusive.
I remember Alexei Yashin's agent claiming that the Senators promised to renegotiate his contract if he hit X number of points, which he fell two short of. The agent then went through all the tape from the year and claimed to have discovered that Yashin was shorted two assists, meaning that the Senators had to renegotiate the contract, and their refusal to do so justified his holdout.
