That's quite a bit of a differential.
Bergeron's first two years were actually 39 and 73 points. Regardless, it's a faulty way of comparing players. For instance, this player didn't look like much his first few years in the NHL:
2003-04 28GP 2G 3A 5P
2005-06 82GP 10G 13A 23P
2006-07 48GP 6G 10A 16P
However, I'd certainly take Ryan Kesler on my team. Wouldn't you?
Here's a more important stat line:
03-04 2:41 PP TOI/G
05-06 4:42 PP TOI/G
09-10 0:35 PP TOI/G
10-11 0:37 PP TOI/G
I'd imagine his numbers would have been better had he gotten similar numbers on the power play. Plus, Bergeron's "second" year in the NHL was post-lockout. He was 20 after spending the lost season in the AHL. Bergeron had 73 points at the age of 20, and ROR had 55 and still only got about half of the PP time Bergeron did thanks to the insane amount of penalties that were called in that season coming out of the lockout.
