He doesn't realize he's doing the same thing and that you can't discuss performance without having a preconceived notion of what the norm for a particular evaluation is. The only difference between him and the others are that they are actually not blind to the fact that they take into account other factors, such as the cap, his hit under it and the play of an average NHL goalie.

Bernie, realize everyone else is also discussing "only on-ice performance" (by your definition), it's just that their notions of good and bad are different. But the subject matter is the same.
