Seeing 6 of 10 and claiming it proves the point distorts what that information provides. I do think that there should be a bit more crash and bang or 'grit' in the 4th line though.
not exactly. 60% of those teams are in the EC. 3 in our division, 2 in the playoffs right now 1, 2 pts out. that weighs it in favor of some grit
