A .12 difference is EXTREMELY significant. Extrapolated over the course of a 15 year career( using Iginla's 1188 Games as a base) for Stamkos it would compare as Inginla's 516 goals to Stamkos' 653 goals. Almost 150 more goals over the course of a career.

Your friend, to put it nicely. Is an idiot.
There are much better ways you can argue Stamkos is a better goal scorer than iginla, but this one is just stupid. You can't just prorate Stamkos's gpg through that many years when Iginla's stats are through over 3 times the amount of years.

Not to mention you didn't even include Stamkos's rookie year yet you used Iginla's entire career Homerism at its finest.

As for lines,any chance Conacher makes the team this year?
