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?
Sorry if I was unclear.

I was speaking about the comparison of Thonton's play for Boston compared to San Jose that season.

He scored 33 points, he must have been great. That's the argument. Having watched every Bruins game that year and as many San Jose games as I could (have Center Ice) there was no comparison in the level of play and it was switched on instantly after the trade.
