because I agree with that; it's just that:

That is what I mean.

The fact that the minor league are mainly populated by C and D players means we can't assume 118 points in the WHL would be 118 points in the NHL, since the overall quality of competition in the NHL is higher.

What it doesn't mean is that the A-level blue and red dots are anything other than A-level blue and red dots.
