    Hey guys, how come these different sites have different numbers sometimes? For example, I was looking at Jack Eichel's pages, and they all say quite different things for Corsi, from 46% to 50%. I was under the assumption that none of them score-adjust (Corsica does if you ask it to) so these should all be the same CF/CA numbers, but the CA numbers on these sites differ by as much as 10 through 5 games. What gives, which one is right? I assume this happens for every player then since there's nothing special about the random one I picked out.

    Just a quick look At NST and Corsica, Corsica has Eichel at 50% CF% but only through 4 games. They haven't updated him for his 5th game.
    NST has 5 games.

    Dunno what's up with Hockey Reference.

    Didn't see that NST updated the fifth game, but when it was at 4 I don't believe it was in agreement with Corsica, it was off by a shot or two.

    But yeah, HR is the big one, because I'm now remembering seeing that site be wrong about a lot of things, including PP%, goals for/against for teams, etc.

    FWIW NHL.com agrees with NST.
    68 and 72.

    So the lesson is probably to be skeptical of hockey reference.

    Edit: Yeah, looking on the Sabres' franchise page, they even give two different values for team goals/team goals against in different places on the same page

    Shame because i love that site

    Hockey-reference uses even strengh minutes which includes 6v5, 4v4, 3v3 etc. The other two are pre-set to 5v5 only.

    I don't know about NST and HR, but I remember encountering wrong data on Corsica.
