He's the worst offensive player that is eligible for a top 100 list.
Fedorov had the opportunity to prove himself in anaheim and he puts up his usual 65 points of mediocrity. Fedorov fans can keep talking about he could have cracked the top 5 in scoring year after year, but he didnt.
Fedorov's defensive impact in terms of reducing a team's overall 'goals against' is nothing compared to actual shutdown defenseman like langway, savard, lidstrom. I swear people act like his hart season is equivalent to a forward scoring 160-180 points.
Playing excellent defense at most makes up for 10-15 points.
Pavel Datsyuk came into tonight 20 points and
20 spots in league scoring behind Sidney Crosby (Datsyuk only two games in hand), and yet those two are undoubtedly the cream of the "overall" talent crop league-wide. Discuss.
