You'll have to forgive me, it's tricky to stay consistent when responding to a nonsense argument.

Maybe if you slice his his numbers as thin as you can until it shows what you want. Of course you should remember that when he came to the Sharks one reason was his playoff scoring. He did great for us in that capacity until he pretty much fell apart and couldn't skate anymore.

The only really good playoff Hossa had was in 07-08 with, guess who, Crosby as his center. As for Kovalchuk, his numbers went down in the playoffs too.
Most of the people on the positive side of the cup ledger, aside from their cup runs, also have a significant goal per game dip, including the great sidney crosby. In other words, they aren't playoff performers (by your standard), until they are. It basically takes a hot run from a player and prior playoff performance is no guarantee of anything. Crosby being Hossa's center is irrelevant to the meme you are pushing.

If the teams are competitive and enough of the games come down to a single goal, then, no they really aren't that different.
