Dont use data and eliminate data points because it doesn't support your argument.
Mostly but not entirely true. For example, including any of the time Biron was in goal (admittedly very little) really doesn't tell you anything about the current team. (For accuracy you would, of course, have to check to see if other teams had a similar situation in goal for a couple of games and remove those from their stats as well).
