Remember that the main goal of a player is to score goals, so points do matter.
No, I disagree. Perreault racks up more points because he ignores the defensive aspects of the game. Madden and Peca rack up less points because they focus on the defensive aspects of the game.

There is not a main goal of a player. That's the mindset that results in Perreault being a poor system player. If there is a 'main goal' it should be that they're not a liability to their team; that they're capable of playing the team's system and being productive from within it. If they can't play the system, then they're compromising the system and we see it break down as we have many times over the past few years.
