The article actually references the Bruins. Accordingly, the Bruins had 4 1st liners and 3 2nd liners. In comparison, the Canucks had 3 1st liners and 3 2nd liners. Bruins bettered the Canucks in this regard.

The comparison to the "average" is made to correct a few opinions on what actually constitutes a top6 player in today's NHL. It's "prudent" to understand first what this team actually has, in order to then understand what it needs. Instead of just speculating and supposing what it needs based on one's own subjectivity - and then proceeding to cram that opinion down other's throats in a most incessant manner...
