- Step was tied for 113-120 spot among all forwards in scoring.
- Anisimov was tied for 121-124 spot.

This means that AA and Step were borderline 4-5 leading scorers on an average NHL team. Considering that being a second second liner means being in the top 6, their scoring is already at the second line level. However, due to their age the two are not as polished as others at the same level.

By the way, if they score 50+ points, they will be in the top 90 scorers (30 teams X 3 players), and both are likely to reach that plateau.

I must say, scoring has really gone down since I became a fan. I remember when GAA below 3.00 was considered good for a starter and anything below 2.50 was absolutely unbelievable and could have only been achieved by an amazing goalie with great defense in front of him.

Our 1994 third line of Tikkanen - Nemchinov - Noonan all had around 50 points that year, and scoring had already started to go down by then.
