Obviously their records weren't as bad as yours, but lots of bad teams have a player or two that score a bunch of goals.
That's the thing though.. Bure and Kovalchuk were already established players having won the Richard before. Crosby is Crosby, he was regarded as the best prospect in the world, and delivered.. This is Ben Hanowski, need I say more?
