If you honestly think Winnik is as good as Anisimov, you must be actually buying in to his current goal-scoring pace.

But fine. Let's say that O'Reilly and Stepan did have equivalent linemates. O'Reilly outscored Stepan, and played Selke caliber defense. There is no way that Stepan can be considered the better player.
