Sounds crazy doesn't it?

Last season Daniel averaged 0.98G/60, and 0.75A1/60. Hansen averaged 0.83G/60, and 0.83A1/60. When you consider linemates and Daniel's significant offensive zone starts, who was more efficient?

The significant difference in Daniel's point totals and Hansen's were Daniel's A2's where he averaged 0.52/60 while Hansen averaged a mere 0.30/60. That to me suggests Hansen had inferior linemates, while Daniel's linemates were better at finishing plays.

It sounds crazy, but I think we have a real gem in Jannik Hansen and if given more of an opportunity he could be an elite scorer on our team, based on last years stats.
