There are less players who score 50 then players who make 60 assists anyway. Maybe it's just me but the 50 goals scorer wins everytime. We'll just agree to disagree.
its not that i necessarily disagree 100 percent with you. In the Thornton and Vinny case we are talking about a difference of often upwards of 20 point differential.

If we were talking a 50 goal 65 assists Lecavalier than i'd be more inclined to take him over the 25 goal 100 assists Thornton.

There has been only a few seasons were Vinny has been close to Joe in total points. Aside from 2 seasons, Vinny has been a 65 to 80 point guy while Joe has been a pretty consistent 90-100. Thats a big difference.
