One of my favorite readings on the QoC/QoT stat.

It's not often the stat actually offers any sort of special insight into the players between compared in my opinion.
That looks like the same article already posted. All that says is the average player plays the average player. There are a lot of well above and well below average players and they usually get matched up vs each other making a large difference in QOC.

For the most part 1st lines play 1st lines and 4th lines play 4th lines. Rarely are they out 1st vs 4th. You can't avoid having your offensive stars play the best D on the other teams unless you just don't play them. With how fluid the game is, changing of possessions, and shifts on the fly, if a coach wants his shutdown D out vs Malkin he is going to get him out there 80+% of the game even on the road.
