I wish people would stop using TOI stats to project point totals. It just plain does not work like that.

Mathieu Perreault, Nick Foligno and Rich Peverley had a higher P/60 than John Tavares, Daniel Sedin, Anze Kopitar, etc. It does not mean they're better offensive players. And these aren't isolated examples, go ahead and look for yourself and there are all kinds of red flags. Yes, there are a lot of star players at the top, which makes sense because they score a lot, but there are also a lot of players that don't belong there or players that are good but way higher than they should be.

It's just not a reliable or relevant way of projecting point totals. If Jamie Benn was capable of scoring as many points as Steven Stamkos his coaches would put him in situations where he could do that. If Tyler Ennis could score at the rate of a top 15 point producer, he'd be a top 15 point producer. There's no such thing as these tremendous offensive players who can score at superstar rates that aren't already scoring at superstar rates.
