Some stats don’t tell the whole story

The primary goal of this site is to provide mature, meaningful discussion about the Vancouver Canucks. However, we all need a break some time so this forum is basically for anything off-topic, off the wall, or to just get something off your chest! This forum is named after poster Creeper, who passed away in July of 2011 and was a long time member of the Canucks message board community.

the secondary assist is worth just as much..most of the time.

i agree, but the fact that it is always given out is odd...if it bounces off your skate to another player & they score, you really didn't assist the player.
If you do give an assist ....do you give an assist to the forechecking player that causes a turn over but never touches the puck??
