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.
What about what forwards were on the ice? (Not being cynical I just have no idea and too lazy to check) as they push the play more than defensemen do.

But your point still stands...

But IMHO any NHLer regular is heads above a prospect... (with the exception of very particular role players like grit/etc)
