Again, it's not as if he wound up on the first line of a terrible team where he was forced to play minutes he didn't deserve.

Also, the point I was making is that it's not as if he was a guy playing with a couple superstars and racking up points because of that. He played with two competent, but not great NHLers. He was arguably the most offensively talented player on his line for most of the season.

So my question stands: can you name a two-way player who had over 50 points?
Not saying that he didn't deserve those minutes, but it's worth noting that he played the most of the entire team and 18th highest among every forward in the NHL while acquiring the 54 points he totaled.

There are plenty of two way players around the league that scored more than 50 points this year.
