I spent some time studying Corsi and trying to determine if it would help. I haven't shut the door on it yet, but at this point I'm not ready to make it a prominent part of what I research, write about, and present in fantasy guides. I think it's an indicator of a player's potential if the coach gives him more ice/better linemates...but it still boils down to the coach. If you know that the coach cares about/knows about his players' Corsi numbers then obviously that would be a huge edge...for analyzing players on that particular team
