I don't think it's in question that Tkachuk is going to be worse in the play-offs, but the question is how much...

Personally, I evaluate players on their whole careers, and then make slight adjstments for the play-offs. If he's better in the play-offs, then I rank him slightly higher, and it he's worse, I'd rank him slightly lower.

I'll use Bernie Geoffrion and Charlie Conacher as an example:
In the regular season, I have Charlie Conacher slightly ahead of Geoffrion. The difference in small, but I think there is a small one.

When the play-offs roll around, there is a slight change. Since Geoffrion is clearly the better play-off performer, he gets a boost for me. That boost is enough to move him up to being even with Conacher... maybe slightly ahead.
