Let's call it common sense.
Nobody does. Or do you wanna explain me why Mark Stone is by far the best takeaway player in this league and nobody ever realized it? I can't wait to read your explanation.
If those numbers are true, Mark Stone would be an absolute star. Datsyuk's all time NHL-record for takeaways is 144 but in 82 games.
In all fairness, Mark Stone is a good player. But these numbers are just ridiculous.
Lets not call it common sense. Common sense isn't assuming the eyeball test, which has been widely and repeatedly proven to be one of the least reliable forms of evidence, is a more accurate means of measuring a parameter than another method, which you have no insight to how is even measured. That's rejecting data for intuition and/or emotion, which is the exact opposite of sensical. Incidentally that's the same issue that's plaguing the anti-vaccine movement. Its intuition and emotion based on preconceived notions you have with Tatar, or Helm, or Smith, or whomever else which you are relying on to make interpretations on otherwise quantifiable data, and when the data isn't congruent with your intuition, you reject the data, instead of modify your original hypothesis. If science was run like this our society never would have accepted the sun is the center of our solar system, or that infectious disease is a manifest of microorganisms. I have no issue with being skeptical of information presented to you, but when the purported alternative is supported exclusively by "because that's what I think" then there's a problem.
