Everything you stated above is likely explained by one variable. Matched D pairings. The topline has often had the number 1 pair Schultzes on it while the second line has often had Whitney and whatever other dreck. I assure you that would be the salient operative variable right now.

Interestingly this changed yesterday and I welcome it. Nice to see Gagner getting the support of J Schultz and rid of Whitney for at least one game.

Heres a simpler stat but probably more meaningful.

Gagner 13pts

Nuge 5pts (despite that Nuge is playing with the most elite talented players on the club and with J Schultz driving much of the production that the line has)
This seems like a rather dismissive, almost insulting response. Not to even mention you have used those exact stats in the past to support your position on certain players. Then when others use it you say those stats are useless.

Why not just admit it if someone has something that shows that your position or opinion is not nearly what you thought it was? Too much pride to admit when you might be wrong? Just seeing what you want to see?
