WTF does winning % have to do with one player? Give me a break.

I'll repeat:

With his play in the KHL and another summer of rehab, there's no reason now to think his knee isn't at 100% and he canbare the ice time he used to play before the injury. He's averaged more than 21min. a gme in the KHL this year.

What does winning % have to do with anything?? Really? If a team wins the vast majority of the games they play with a particular player and loses the vast majority of games without him, then yes, I put stock in that. If Habs lost most games that Price played and won most games he didn't play, I don' tthink he'd be in the lineup for very long...
