Freshman year
36 games, 7 goals and 12 assists (19 points) for Atkinson (4th in points)

38 games, 15 goals and 8 assists (23 points) for Kreider (5th in goals, 9th in points)

Sophomore year
42 games, 30 goals and 23 assists (53 points) for Atkinson (led team in goals and points)

32 games, 11 goals and 13 assists (24 points) for Kreider (8th in points)

Junior year
39 games, 31 goals and 21 assists (52 points) for Atkinson (led team in goals and points, goals by 10 and points by 1 [although the 3rd-most points on the team was 18 back])

44 games, 23 goals and 22 assists (45 points) for Kreider (led team in goals and points, both by 1)

First AHL year
51 games, 29 goals and 15 assists (44 points) for Atkinson (was leading AHL in goals at time of callup)

29 games, 5 goals and 6 assists (11 points) for Kreider (season in progress)

NHL action
27 games, 7 goals and 7 assists (14 points) for Atkinson (all regular season, two separate stints. 5 goals and 5 assists came in his last 6 games)

18 games, 5 goals and 2 assists (7 points) for Kreider (all playoff games)

Just like Gilbert Brule. He, of course, did nothing in the NHL but was traded for Raffi Torres (who represents about the best that a player with tools and no hockey IQ can hope to achieve).
See? I only used R. Smith in the OP because I was familiar with him. Atkinson is just as good, if not better of an example of what I was trying to do in the OP. But since Rangers fans (and only Rangers fans) took it personally, that obviously didn't go over like it was supposed to.
