This list is legitimately in opposition to advanced stats - these are raw point totals, pts per game, and 5v5 plus-minus.
An advanced stats list would be based on RAPM (measures the individual performance of a given player in an environment where many factors can impact their raw results), expected goals %, relative-to-teammates, quality of competition, etc.
My opinion is that points matter, stats matter, but if you can support 'why the player is able to perform' with more than 'he was one of the last 3 guys to touch the puck before it went in', you have a better argument. Also, if I were going to use raw points, I'd at least divide per 60 instead of per game. And I'd try to factor in 5v5 vs PP since there seems to be a lot of noise in who/what gets credit for PP production.
