Yeah, production matters, but you're comparing production across leagues. You're bound to run into trouble. This should be clear in the comparison of Parise to Dawes. Dawes was a 19 year old in a league filled with 16-20 year olds. Parise was a 19 year old in a league filled with 18-22 year olds. Dawes, clearly, is going to be among the most experienced and physically developed players in that league while Parise was among the more inexperienced and least physically developed.

One can argue how important production is, but you have to at least compare apples to apples.
