bottom line is: Oil and Leafs fans like to think their player is better.
Can't stand this argument. Let me try and reverse it...

Is Bozak a better defensive player? Why yes, he is. But he also plays more on the penalty kill.

Apparently powerplay points are a bad thing on HF. Any way to negatively spin Gagner's numbers though - whether it be an 8 point game or too many power play points.
