Is it really that difficult for you to tell the difference between a 60-point season and a 100-point season?
okay, so right before you posted that reply, i said:

but we've broken this down in this thread already. the debate is basically this: a guy who plays really awesome defense and produces in the playoffs vs. a guy who is awesome in the regular season and who may or may not have been good in the playoffs if he'd had the chance.

no amount of scrutinizing fedorov's regular season point production or qualifying his playoff numbers by per-game percentages or whatever is going to account for how good his defense was. and, as you don't seem to know or want to admit, that defense was FAR better than the defense of elite two-way players you've been comparing fedorov to.

you keep saying to prove it. you can't prove that with numbers. we can only prove it by telling you what we saw. the technology hasn't yet been invented for you to remember our memories.
