The corsi rel qualcomp list is only the "adjustment" that is added/subtracted to the raw corsi numbers. It is not very significant. Zone starts adjustments (which unfortunately aren't accounted for anywhere on behindthenet) are absolutely critical. Nothing impacts your corsi numbers more than where you start your shifts.
The bolded doesn't make any sense to me. Because it doesn't take into account quality of shots, Crosby (the guy with a good shot) has a better corsi than Kennedy (the guy who shoots from everywhere).
