Trying to answer this without looking at the multitude of posts that have divulged the identities...

I know that the first statline is Kovalev. So I am guessing that this comparison is meant to show how Kovalev is statistically similar to some other "scrub" despite having a much better reputation (of course, that reputation being almost solely build of his offensive contribution), thereby bringing into question the reputation itself.

Kovalev looks to have the clearly superior playoff numbers, though he did play for some high-octane teams. Also, player B's statline kind of looks like that of a compiler to me..no 90+ point seasons. Again, if he is a defensive stalwart then it changes things...but you likely would have mentioned that. Still, some kind of context (teammates, ice time, games played) would be needed.

Lastly, I'll finish off by saying that Kovalev's reputation was gained through watching him. His ability to take over games was (is?) unquestionable.
