I don't think you read the article. There's no mention of pro-rating Booth's totals. Or pro-rating at all (AFAIK) That was a note I made.
The article dates July 17th, 2011. When the team still had Samuelsson... In it, it concludes that the top6 cut off being 34 points. Now I haven't checked nhl.com for this past year to see if the hypothesis holds from year to year, but it's not without reason that it does.
If it does hold, does it mean that the Canucks have 8 top6 forwards? Caveat: Now that's with pro-rating Booth and Raymond reverting to his old form... (They had 9 with Hodgson in the fold)
