With all this talk about historic PP production, I decided to check the forum and see what had been said about it in the past. I came across a post from Overpass listing the PP numbers from the 1953-54 Rangers, pulled from the game summary project. And guess who happened to be on that team? The Winnipeg Monarchs' 2nd-unit left wing

Overpass called Mickoski an "even strength scorer" in that post, and tied it to some very low PP numbers. And that was during one of his highest goal scoring seasons for which we have box scores! Since we're pressed for time here and a full career analysis is implausible, I decided to pull the numbers for his next two highest-scoring seasons and see if the pattern bears out.

Since these are among his best scoring seasons, we can be fair about projecting these numbers out into the rest of Mickoski's career. He may have had an outlier season at some point, but it would have been only an outlier.

So after ripping Brown for his team placements on the PP, the Monarchs are actually using a guy at the same line, position, and role who is demonstrably worse
