I'm not even sure why we're arguing over PP production, I've always thought and said in previous threads like this, that they were close to one another for PP QBing.
It has always been in ES production that Bourque walks away with it.
And you are wrong. It's been shown repeatedly Lidstrom and Bourque's scoring ratio is similar at even strength and on the power play, albeit with Bourque simply scoring more altogether.
I may have missed something, but wasn't it pointed out recently Bourque's reliance on the power play for scoring in the playoffs was much higher than Lidstrom's?
