- Vs. Non playoff teams 10 g 12 a 22 points
- ES vs. Top 6 3 g 3 a 6 points

Mike Knuble scored 15g 9a against non and 6g 16a vs. playoff teams
Joe Thornton scored 14g 33a against non and 9g 17a vs. playoff teams

Now, I dont believe that ANY of the guys that I just mentioned are overrated. Just saying if we rate one guy with one measuring stick, its only fair to rate everyone by that same stick, right....

Well gee, I am not comparing Bill Guerin, a 9 million dollar player who has been in the league for 10 year...the kid is 18. He will eclipse what Guerin has done in his career by the time he is 28.

The point is that Guerin is not, was not, and never was worth that type of dough because he is not an elite player and does not step it up when the competition is at its best.
