Opposing fans look at Josh Bailey's 30 pts a yr and don't see that he's very solid defensively and on the pk.

Bailey moved up from the 3rd line, playing the last month or so on the 2nd line with Frans Nielsen and Kyle Okposo. They formed a very dangerous line for those weeks, with Bailey scoring 17 pts in 19 games. He had only 32 for the total season.

Does that mean fans should ignore Bailey's actual final stats and think 'oh, if he'd had all season on a line with Frans Nielsen and Kyle Okposo, he'd have had 65 pts?
