This whole time we've been comparing center points to winger points with little regard for the fact that they are slightly different currencies.
If Pittsburgh is relying on Nevin to be the primary puck handler and playmaker of the line, it's the same currency.
Edit: I probably shouldn't have argued against the "points are harder to come by for wingers" theory considering the makeup of my team, heh
