I know you are but what am I?

All I'm saying is that when you're looking for comparisons, singling out top-of-the-league stats is a bit extreme. It'd be like me (or some other CBJ fan) suggesting that Cam Atkinson is "unlikely to reach 120 points". To which the immediate response is "well, yeah, him and nearly every other player in the National Hockey League".

Comparisons aren't useful if they're that outlandish.

Congratulations to all Las Vegas area hockey fans, present and future!
