If it was 1.6ppg vs 1.3ppg I'd call it a wash but it's a full extra ppg, it's scoring >1gpg vs <.5gpg.

And as far as RNH's ability to chip in offensively is concerned I have no doubt that he could be useful, I just think he's a kid who's not ready for the nhl. If he had Kane's speed and agility that would be one thing but he doesn't. I think he'll get wrecked here playing against Tootoo, Burrows, etc.
