My point is that unless you believe Fedorov and those other two guys are the only three players that have ever performed at a high level in the playoffs for four years in a row, it's not a very informative stat. It's interesting but way too dependent on one's team situation.

Incidentally, I also believe you are wrong. Osgood in '94 wasn't ready to carry the Wings deep enough (and if memory serves, he did play most of that series anyway), and you clearly don't remember Patrick Roy's lights out performance against the Wings in '99. Yes, Ranford was awful in Games 3 and 4, but Detroit dominated for long stretches of that series and got shut down anyway. So aggravating.
