08-09: 7th behind Seabrook, Keith, Byfuglien, Hjalmarsson, Barker, and Walker.
09-10: 7th behind Seabrook, Keith, Johnsson, Boynton, Hjalmarsson, and Sopel.
10-11: 4th behind Seabrook, Keith, and Hjalmarsson.

That looks absolutely brutal. But when you look at the playoffs, it's different.

07-08: 3rd behind Semenov, and McLaren.(those two guys only played 2 and 5 games respectively so Campbell was more or less #1).
08-09: 7th behind Seabrook, Keith, Byfuglien, Walker, Barker, and Hjalmarsson.
09-10: 3rd behind Hjalmarsson, and Sopel.
10-11: 4th behind Keith, Leddy, and Campoli.

Those just look odd to me.
I'm not sure playoff Qualcomp is meaningful. The fact that it's a single iteration is a big problem in the strict matchup environment of the playoffs, especially in so few games.

Single iteration means that players like Duncan Keith who faced the Sedins in the 2011 playoffs would get a low qualcomp for that matchup, because the Sedins were minus players. Keith's qualcomp doesn't consider the fact that the Sedins faced tough competition.
