You're right. It was a rather quick and dirty analysis, and I simply compared the wrong numbers. Thank you for correcting me.

8 goals in 89 games is still terrible for a guy whose greatest asset as a player was his powerplay goalscoring, and that's the rub with Tkachuk. At even strength, he's comparable to guys drafted much later, and on the powerplay, woe unto the GM who depends on his production in the playoffs.
