It is a tiny sample size. 7 playoffs.

What point is that? The only point is that the whole team needs to perform. Your homegrown players leading in scoring means nothing if the rest of the team sucks. Kopitar and Brown were exactly 1 PPG last playoffs, the same as Thornton. We know full well we have other players capable of doing that, Marleau has put up .93 PPG before.

The only advantage homegrown players potentially confers is a salary advantage, which the Hawks certainly had but the Kings really did not. The further we get from the start of the salary cap era, the less salary advantage homegrown players will confer.
