And this is the irony of it all. You are not ranking players based on what you see on the ice. You are ranking players based on a series of formulas, calculations, and computations, which require almost zero hockey knowledge and without the need to watch a single minute of a single game. There is a reason all teams send scouts across the world to actually WATCH players perform on the ice before and after they are drafted. There is a reason teams do not sign players to contracts based on these formulas, but instead rely mainly on their hockey knowledge, and what they see happen on the ice. Analytics will always have a supporting role with the decision making process, but nothing will come close to actually watching a player perform in hockey games, with many different and unique scenarios unfolding each period, to determine how good a player is.
