2. The Stralman vs. Girardi debate is not even the same ballpark as the examples he gave. Stralman and Girardi is a very debatable topic when it comes to who makes the team better when they are on the ice.
1. Again, the development of the set of statistics isn't finished. There's so much work left to be done in a lot of areas.

2. Not in the same ballpark, but the same concept.

Which areas specifically?

Nothing is ever finalized, anyways. There's still breakthroughs in Chemistry and Physics, but there's still a lot of knowledge about how the universe works available from studying those fields.

To me, the two big ones underdeveloped are shot quality and effect of team system. The other one that needs some work is a way to more directly measure the impact of actions without the puck.

at comparing hockey analytics to actual science.

Shot quality is an area where I think there will be massive strides made in the next five years.

I agree with that.

At the very least, I'd also like to see the NHL standardize their real-time statistics and track it themselves, rather than leaving it up to the teams.

Which would only eliminate an infinitesimal error and bias from the arena's stat trackers.
