On any given year, you can expect about 70 points out of Vinny to go along with 30 goals. But we've seen he can do better than this. Pleks, you're lucky to get 70 points, he could easily drop to 50 and he's probably going to max out at about 25 goals on a good year. It's not a huge chasm between them but Vinny is the better player.
Size and grit does not equal defense. The two things are completely separate and only tangentially related.
