There are those that communicate with members of Arctic Ice Hockey often but openly mention that they do not understand shot metrics. Usually, they cite things like stupidity, age, or being too old school as the reasoning. There are also media members who state that the numbers in underlying analytics are too complex for use with the general public.

In high school chemistry, students are taught something called “the Bohr model”. Without going in much detail, the Bohr model was a simple hypothesis on how atoms are framed. The hypothesis though turned out to be overly simplistic. Atoms are far more complex; yet the Bohr model is still taught in high school. The reason it is still taught is because -despite its flaws- it works. The model explains things sufficiently well enough that you can learn the basics of chemistry without any issues.

This article covers hockey statistics in much the same way. This is not an in-depth introduction to underlying numbers; you can get enough of that here if you want. It is however a way to show how hockey statistics represent important factors that have always been part of the game.

Welcome to hockey statistics for idiots (insert the yellow and black cover here).
