He scored a decent number of pts and goals in the PO where Pens won it all. Now, some people say 'what's the big deal, he played on lines with Crosby and Malkin.. of course he'll pick up pts'.

I generally dont like that argument. Most 3rd line grinder PKers, no matter who they play with, they will not score a lotta pts. The variety of 3rd line talent that the mighty Edmonton Oilers in their glory years that rode the first line with Gretzky and Kurri .. they never generated pts even when the Oil won 4 Cups in a row.

I always thought there was some significance to the number of pts Mad Max picked up that year. Paid like a third liner but producing like a born first liner. Not many can do that.
