Yes, they are and that's why watching the players is more important. I mean, things like intangibles, work ethic and grit can't be measured. Best example is Toews, doesn't score things of goals but he is easily a top 3 player behind Crosby and Stamkos << but to know that people have to watch the game instead of paying around with Excel sheets, calculators I mean, GMs are already having enough information those new stats are just something to talk about fire the media.

Your Toews example doesn't help your point. The stat that you say is misleading for him is goals. That is not an advanced stat. The way you could demonstrate Toews is an elite player, despite not huge scoring totals, is through advanced stats. Sure, you can see it with the naked eye with Toews case, but there are often factors that can make a player look good when it is not necessarily due to them (think Ian White with Lidstrom, Bryzgalov with Pheonix). Or maybe factors may make a player look bad (say, if you're trying to judge whether Myers would be a worthy pickup). Advanced stats are an attempt to isolate those consideration.

Maybe it's based on the fact that very recently(last year) they did?

@AnsarKhanMLive: Datsyuk centering line with Helm and Weiss. If Datsyuk plays tomorrow it looks like he'd replace Jurco in lineup.

Yeah not the best looking line. We could call it the Too Many Centers line. Or maybe the Injured Reserve.
