So Dubinsky had a great year putting up those same numbers but Pappy was just ok? One more point he would have led our team in scoring.
Ask yourself this, would PAP be a 1st line forward on any team not named the Islanders? The answer is no, he would be a 3rd liner on any team with depth, in which case he's not even sniffing 50 points. His production this season is a reflection of his playing time he was given on the Islanders, he's not seeing those minutes on any competitive teams that don't have the Islanders lack of depth & veteran forwards... Slot him into his natural position on the depth chart of a competitive team, and he a 30-40 point forward.
