Note: Booth was on pace for about 40 points last year.

Note 2: Raymond has had 2 seasons at top6 production and 1 below (broken back). Is he still considered a top6?

Note3: Higgins and Hansen were definitely top6 calibre players last year.
The obvious oversight in this article is the fact games played isn't factored in. Booth gets pro-rated to a 40 point player but the same isn't done for the dozens and dozens of other injured players...

Not to mention the point totals of players on weak teams that can't score is irrelevent. The objective isn't to be a poor or average hockey team... If it were, Gillis would have no reason to bring in another forward.
