Some of that is likely due to variance over a small sample, but your point still may have some truth.

Wasn't team quality and performance being discussed as well? So were the values of goals vs. assists. They were basically even in ES points (although Jagr tied Cheechoo in ES goals and elevated Nylander to #3 in ES points). Jagr had a better ES GF/GA ratio, but Thornton's off-ice comparison was weaker. What else should be considered?
