    How much stock do you guys put in it? Which website has the best calculation? Would you put it above Corsi, Fenwick, scoring chances, high danger corsi, etc. ?

    I'm no expert on this, but here is a good article breaking down the expected goal for stat - The Importance of Expected Goals - Blueshirts Breakaway

    Seems like it's an important stat, weighting the shot attempts for shot quality. In as random of a game as hockey is, not all shots are created equal.
