Lecavalier is no longer elite anyway.

As for Crosby and Toews. Both were injured at some point. They were at reasonable PPGs to hit 70 points but didn't. I happen to count injury status as a downside too but can respect they could will be back to form as soon as this year.

If you wanna bring up defensive play and all that, sure. Just at a certain point whats the criteria? You said 70 points, you never said if gally would have strong or weak defensive play. I just assumed it would be respectable or average.

FWIW, I don't consider any player in last years 70+ points club to be weak defensively. Good players.
