This is exactly the issue. You hit it on the head. We base our opinions on what we see hopefully with a large sample; and most posters when forming an opinion with a small sample qualify their comments with something that recognizes that fact. We are hockey fans who form opinions on players based on our perception of how much they help our team win games. Why do we NEED additional information. We can use it if we want but you guys make it seem like advanced stats are a necessary component to fan player evaluation. I think it's not.
