All 43-point seasons are not created equal.
Stalberg had 43 ES points and 0 PP points last year. He scored more ES points than Alex Ovechkin, Brad Richards, Daniel Sedin, Eric Staal, Patrick Marleau, and so on.
He's a top-6 forward who doesn't play the PP, but he's unquestionably a top-6 guy at ES. And a damned good one at that.
And no matter what the distribution, 43 points does make you a second line forward.
