I have written a few sabermetrics and hockey about combining Corsi Number and zone starts. I listed the top 20 and worst 20 players by this metric. The main remaining flaw is that team effects are not taken into account. A player will get a good rating merely by playing on a good team and will get a poor rating by playing on a bad team. That effect is the next one to remove. This can be done by taking team Corsi Numbers which are also adjusted for zone starts and doing a team adjustment similar to the one Klein and Reif discuss in the Hockey Compendium. It is necessary to use zone start adjusted numbers consistently throughout the calculation to avoid double counting (or missing out) on zone start effects.
