Yeah, very small sample size and those 55pts in 50 games are a myth.

Ville Leino, in comparison:
2009-2010 - 19gp 7-14-21
2010-2011 - 11gp 3-2-5
His career production so far has been around there. He's slightly above PPG in 55 games. That's not even a full NHL season.

Playing well in the playoffs in the past doesn't mean you're magically going to be much better in them even if your regular season production slips. He's a very good player capable of putting up a Point Per Game and did so in a sample size less than an entire season.

Now, if Drew Stafford scored 55 points in 50 playoff games but otherwise was a 40-50 point guy in the regular season you might be on to something.
