Antro played easier competition than GST (top forwards wise but not top pairing D wise) and easier competition than Ladd's Little Wheeler (both F and D). He played similar competition to Miettenin and Wellwood. He played tougher competition than Kane, Machacek, Burmistrov, Fehr, Stapleton, Maxwell, or Jaffray.

Shot differential wise (aka corsi aka scoring chances) only Ladd's Little Wheeler, and our final second line beat him (Kane, Wellwood, Burmistrov *who got pulled up a bit by the other two*). Jaffray (small sample) and Fehr were similar. The rest were far worse.

Scoring wise:
Goals - only Kane, Machacek (high sh%), Ladd, and Little were better per minute of icetime.
Primary assists - only Machacek (high on ice sh%, 3x Wheeler), Maxwell (2x Wheeler on ice sh%), and Wheeler were better.

On PP Antro had the second highest g/toi, and 3rd highest a1/toi (not counting Stapleton cos he played point). Little was first for goals and Kane/Wheeler were ahead for assists... but not by much.
On PK only Burmi, Ladd and Wheeler did better at reducing shots against.

So basically Antro was middle-high of the road for offence and middle for defence for our team. He will outperform GST on the checking line next season, but the large difference will be more due to Ponikarovsky (who tends to be the best on his team for tough minutes) and a bit of Wellwood/Burmistrov pulling him up.
