<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>yikes</b></div><div>I agree with Habs but also kakko too a degree.

I've used it as an example many times from my team.

Karlsson had a fantastic game earlier this year (multi point too maybe cant remember), and his analytics on that same night were atrocious. And his overall adv stats on the year dipped after said great game. Like he truly played a great game and it was one of his better games of the year.

Now I'm always defending Karlsson from the hoards of hater/ other sharks fans. And I do agree he is not amazing nor is he worth 11mil. But his style of NEVER favored analytics and in his prime seasons with the Sens, he does not have good ADV numbers (from the historical ADV stats site I used). And that was displayed that night. As even with a amazing game he literally had like replacement level value on the ADV stats. Saying he basically was worth 700k while he put forth an elite showing of talent.

It's always best in tandem IMO as I still use numbers all the time but I do agree watching numbers and not the game can be a mighty hindrance at times.</div></div>

I'm a huge fan of analytics, what I'm not a huge fan of is how people use them. Lot's of stuff happens during a game in which the naked eye can't pick up, while also their is many important parts of the game that no advanced metric can measure. The eye test should always come first, any pro scout with any creditability will tell you they always use the eye test as their most important evaluation tool. Analytics are useful when comparing players that are very close in skill and production level, using analytics to compare a 1st pairing dman to a 3rd pairing dman is where I have a problem with some of the analytics community, you can't compare a guy who plays 12-15 sheltered minutes a night to a guy playing 25 minutes against the other teams best players, that's just not logical.
