Advanced Stats Question Ducks' Playoff Ability

Adding fuel to the fire over the advanced stats debate, Puck Daddy's infamous Ryan Lambert takes a stab at the Ducks playoff survival chances through the lens of advanced statistics. In the past, Lambert has praised the Ducks for their work, and is an outspoken fan of Teemu Selanne, so right from the get-go do not assume he hates the Ducks. Before you either quickly dismiss him as yet another number-crunching nerd critic or sound the alarm as hail his predictions as prophecies, take a moment and consider everything with a grain of salt. While I personally think Lambert does make some great points about the Ducks in regards to their alarmingly declining possession numbers, it's also rather clear that some of the points seem a bit outlandish. Then again it's also obvious from some of the points he makes that he hasn't seen more than a small handful of Ducks games this season. Advanced stats are just numbers, and interpretation from them are not necessarily correct. They are a tool for explaining what has happened, not a tell-all as to what will happen.
