That's pretty ****ing stupid if you think about it for more than a second or two.
It's amazing how the advanced stats crowd can sell a narrative.
The Hall-RNH-Eberle line regularly lined up against top pairing defenseman. Sure they got a lot of o-zone starts (RNH couldn't win faceoffs) but they weren't nearly as sheltered as we've been lead to believe.
