You don't? Keep in mind they are 3rd liners who aren't on the PP so it is their ES play that is the most relevant. Nevin was 9th, 11th, 11th, 16th in ESP in a much deeper era. Laprade's point finishes are 12th, 17th, 19th, 20th, and since that can't be compartmentalized for better analysis the safest assumption is that his ES finishes look like that too. I know that in Laprade's time, the percentages associated with sub-15th place finishes are just brutal a lot of the time due to the shallower era, so the difference is probably greater than the finishes indicate.
