And 2012 Playoff stats: Jenner-4g 7a 11p Thomas-2g 2a 4p...Who outproduced who? Thomas was like .1ppg better in the regular season. Factoring in the bonus "value" points for being a year younger and playoff performance we'll call it a wash with the "value" points Thomas gets for being Ranger property.
And since 2000 the Bluejackets have drafted 2 players who scored 20, the Rangers 4. Wow. How bout 40 goals?? Jackets: 1 and Rangers: 0...You cant add bogus "value" points to 0, thats a rule. So the simple "value" answer to to end all of this is that the Bluejackets need 2 of the 4 20 goal scorers for 1 40 goal scorer.
So 2 of Petr Prucha, Ryan Callahan, Brandon Dubinsky, Derek Stepan for Rick Nash. Simple as that.
Guess you missed the point of why I brought it up.
The Rangers won 51-games last year with five players in their top 9 who were Rangers draftees. In the postseason, the number went up to 6 when you include Kreider.
Dubinsky, Callahan, Stepan, Hagelin, Anisimov, and later, Kreider.
When teams play as well as the Rangers did with a majority of home-grown players, it adds to the credibility of the front office and the quality of their non-NHL amateurs.
When a team like the BJ's displays a tough time developing NHL talent at the forward postion, it hurts the FO's credibility.
Add to that the fact that between 2002 and 2008, the BJ's drafted forwards 1st overall, 4th overall, 8th overall, 6th overall, 6th overall, 7th overall, and 6th overall in consecutive years, and only 3 of 7 still have an NHL job speaks volumes.
