What a terrible, terrible argument. Blake is not a 40-goal scorer. He had one season at 40 (and even then, only topped out at 69 points), and none of the others were even close to that level. By the time Grabovski played with him, he had regressed to worse than even his average season, and Grabovski was not "unsuccessful with him".

Playing with a player who fluked out some season in the past, is not the same as playing with two PPG players in the present.

Why are you using goal totals? Oh, that's right, to skew the facts. And Kulemin only scored 30 goals once, when he was with Grabovski.

Bozak played with two PPG players. And he was only the best choice there because of chemistry and the need to spread out offense. Grabovski played with a 43-point player, and either a 28-point player or a rookie, and was forced into defensive roles.

Connolly only played 10 or so games in that position, Lombardi only played there when Bozak was injured, and Steckel was never used there as a regular or as anything more than to win face-offs.

No, he knew to keep one of the better offensive players who can carry the play on his own line, so as to spread out offense and roles most effectively.
