That said, if you're going to do this, at least try to be scientific about it! As others have said, compare 1:1 production, not 2:1. Also you can't just default to points, because whether you like it or not, there have been injuries, on both sides.
As I showed in post #76, the production
is a decisive win for the Flyers so far. Voracek/Simmonds/Couturier/Schenn's offensive production per minute matches Carter/Richards, and that's 4 players vs 2 players. Obviously, for 2 forwards to be worth 4 forwards, the 2 forwards would have to significantly out-produce the 4 forwards on a per minute basis. When you consider age/contract it looks even better.
