RelCorsiQoC -1.723

That puts him as 18th lowest quality of competition for a forward in the NHL to play a game last season (out of 595 players).
Right, I'm not arguing that.

My point is that one of his goals was against a top pairing defenseman and the goal was completely caused by him making the interception of Yandle's pass. Also if you look at his goal against San Jose, their top pairing was on the ice as well which included Brent Burns.

Meaning my only point was that you can't completely write off his 3 goals because he wasn't playing quality competition. Because as it turns out 2/3 were against high competition.
