The point is to think more in terms of overall team performance rather that individual counting stats. When you can build a really good offensive team through depth scoring, whether you have a couple of guys lighting it up really isn't that important.

Shouldn't you think its a little significant that they're managing this feat in their worst season in the standings?

Having a good collection of overall talent is more important that a couple great players. And two-way ability counts for more than racking up points.
I don't understand why you're trying to frame it as either/or. Why do I have to choose between the two? And wouldn't having two guys who can pot 30 goals make for a better team?

I see this as pretty pathetic man. You think it's no big deal... okay. But again, pretty much every other team has been able to do this except us.
