Over a 82 game schedule, Patches will have more points than AK.

He's a good bottom 9 player, not top 6.

I wish I was wrong, but all you have to do is look at his body of work...and it's not just the stats.
Two things :

1- He's averaging 15 minutes per game. Give him the extra 5 minutes other forwards have, which is 33% more icetime and do your own maths. 45 points become 60.

2- Give him all the chances to perform with the best players, on ES and PP, and his stats will prove you wrong. And doing so, don't scratch or bench him after every little mistake he does. He finished the season at +3, not -15, so what is he doing so wrong that every time he does a simple mistake, he gets benched or put on the 3rd/4th line. I don't get it. Some players play like garbage but get all the opportunities to rebound, but some others don't.

We all know he's better than his brother who got 52 (?) pts last season. I can't wait to see all the haters whinning about AK when he'll put up 35 goals-30 assists with another team.
