Like I said it's more of a pet peeve than anything. If you change inputs to a formula but don't change the formula, you can't now declare that your formula is "advanced." the formula is not advanced and has not advanced, we just expanded the type of events to put into it and then gave it a stupid name and declared that its advanced. Anyway I mostly get irritated because someone will say "that guys has good advanced stats" or "that guy has good analytics" and all they mean is "that guy has good shot attempt +/-." Analytics are a million times broader than that. Like you would never hear someone in baseball say a player has "good analytics" instead of just saying he has a high WAR. But this happens in hockey all the time. Saying a player has "good analytics" is literally gibberish. One highly flawed, noisy metric is not analytics.
