Imagine, if Malkin, Giroux or Stamkos had played in Hitch's Columbus, would they have been able to put up the same numbers?
And I'm pretty sure that Nash would have scored more had he played in Pittsburgh or Philadelphia.
Yes, I cannot say that I'm very familiar with the Blues. But now I think I'll have to follow the Blues more closely.
Individual forwards putting up great individual scoring numbers isn't always preferable to their individual +/- stats or team +/- stats or team wins/losses. It's a team game. Brett Hull's lower scoring stats at Dallas during their Stanley Cup Championship season may have been preferable to his higher scoring stats had he instead played that year the way he had played previously, with The Blues.
