Look at the Kessel line before JVR started playing with them. Having three forwards who can pass and score is useless if they don't have the time and space to utilize their gifts.
You are right, can't always look at this. That is why people might be nervous about Ross and McKegg, but it is too early, and they aren't in the best situation. I see Biggs being in the same position next year, with far lower point totals. He is a long term (brisket in the oven) project, people can't expect lights out stats right away.
