U have to look at the big picture, not only points. Thoresen is a good two way center/winger and always play great defensively. He got the KHL record when it comes to +/- with +45. He was also a key player when Salavat won the cup. His regular season with SKA was also good. 41 point in 45 games (nr2 in SKA after Mårtensson) isnt bad at all. A center dosent score as much as a winger. So if u look at Thoresens overall performance in the KHL, then he is one of the best.

Also Mårtensson and Weinhandl didnt score much during the playoffs. So for some reason the best players stoped scoring.
