I can't remember the last non-goon Red Wing with so little skill.
Player A first 37 playoff games as a Wing: 3G 2A 5P
Player B first 37 playoff games as a Wing: 3G 9A 12P

No doubt player B is better of course 6 of those assists came in a primary top 6 role. As player B is of course Datsyuk. So Abdelkader has scored exactly as many goals as Datsyuk to this point in their playoff careers, he is certainly trending the wrong way, just pointing out this playoff point on Abdelkader while alarming is something to be careful on really stamping on. Especially given the leeway you give one of the slowest starting superstars playoff careers ever, hopping up and down mad when it is suggested Zetterberg is a better playoff player.
