The problem with the Sedins is their stats are better than they really are (that makes no sense i know). They are 1 dimensional and they are put into just perfect scenarios to perform. They start 80% of the time in the offensive zone, for comparison sakes, Kopitar starts <50%, and they face soft competition, as opposed to Kopitar who faces the toughest along with the 2nd line

There are lots and lots of players who would score 100 points like the Sedins if used like that. Kopitar, Thornton, Getzlaf, Datsyuk. But those guys are expected to match up vs top lines and take defensive assignments aswell

The Sedins are great players, but are no better than the group of centres with the likes of Toews, Kopitar etc etc
