    [QUOTE]The variables cannot be quatified because the players are not robots.  Even after answering all of those questions above, there is the mistake factor, the feeling factor, the fatigue factor, the situation factor and everything else. Everyone who played with Mike Modano a few years ago when he was in the tank because of an off ice financial issue would have had lower stats across the board.  Is there a way to figure that into anything? A few teams, mostly terrible ones, are using made up stats to help with evaluating players. And soon, I predict that they won't be because you cannot use stats like these to judge a player's ability better than you can by watching him play.

    and that is why I love watching games live . So many times I stop following the play to see what a particular player , puckless  , does to get himself in position in the offensive zone and defensive zone.
    Many times it's this positioning that defends a goal and/or causes a scoring chance.
    No stat for that.

    Hey lady, what's your deal? Yesterday you were full of tips as to what kind of lingo real hockey people used but today, nothing. Sorry I used such a big word like "evaluate". No wonder you were confused. Oh well, your still funny whether you realize you're a joke or not.

    From Bruins.com
    Jim Benning is in his fifth season with the Bruins and his fourth as the club’s Assistant General Manager, as he was named to that post on July 14, 2007. In that position, he serves as an advisor to General Manager Peter Chiarelli on all matters pertaining to player evaluation, trades and free agent signings, in addition to assisting the General Manager in overseeing all individuals in their specific duties for the Bruins.

    The debates went sour after " putting words in your mouth " became your favourite line.

    I grew tired of it....... It was shown to be false.

    I've had my say. Now it's time for the big fat mailman to come to your rescue and scold me.

    Back to the thread's main theme. 

    Last year at this time comparisons were being made with Dubinsky and Marchand. That turned out in favour of the rat mostly because of Dubinsky's sub-par season.

    One year later after a trade and that crappy season, the Dubinsky comparisons have elevated to Rick Nash.

    I don't get it.

    Now back to being off topic again.

    Hey Nas, how about setting up that weekend in Quebec with shupe and dez to watch the "little kids" play ?

    Dez, you might want to take a bed for yourself.

    Now that shupe's back........

    Sorry to expose your stupidity on the "stat tool" used by "evaluators" , and since some others on this thread called you out on your moronic statements pertaining to Rick Nash, you have blown an emotional gasket - which means you not only spew random nonsense most of the time, but trying to gain approval of others is really at the core of your comments...I was wrong about you - it's not that you are misguided- your misguided and insecure...my bad

    Re: Absurdity 101

    Stats never tell the whole story for any sports, they can be indicators and sometimes useful but the true tale is told when watching a player perform. You must watch them perform in every situation, as well as watch them read situations as well as react - that's really the tale to be told. However, that being said stats can still be useful in certain aspects - you just have to take them for face value and not dig too deep, use them as a support rather than a foundation and keep in mind all the variables they entail.

    Just my two cents.

    Now Now.  We can only live in the present...we all have our flaws(like being over sensitive and putting words in peoples mouths to strngthen an argument for example)...I believe you NAS and I should form the Wolfpack.  :-)

    Wouldnt this stuff be the very definition of "troll?"

    Coming into the hockey forum to do nothing but annoy hockey fans with zero contribution otherwise?

    This guy could be more troll than null.


    PS, a picture of the B's OT from a guy supporting the train wreck at the bottom of the AL. East?  Wow.
