Now that I have more time…

1.****** I’m not saying players like that are “outliers” in the sense that their point totals are far away from the pack, it’s that they’re in those high spots as a result of a generational talent.
2.****** I know you think you’re being clever “spoofing” me with the 3 stars - let me just add that I can’t control this. My phone is throwing it in somehow in the formatting from an outlook email to an android email to a web page. It's not there when I hit send...

Why be such a big bad meanie pants deliberately? It doesn’t help anything. You are obviously smart enough to know that I understand and just don’t agree.

1.****** I don’t call it “vs. 2”, I tend to call it “the percentage system”, as unaesthetic as that may be.
2.****** Good point. In a season when Kurri finishes #2 in scoring thanks to Gretzky, who is actually the “second best scorer”? I’d almost guarantee you that it was not Kurri. And that’s all I’ve ever been trying to say.
