Well, let's take a look....
Since Strum's percentage system seems to be the most accepted way of using the percentage method, I'll use his benchmarks.
In all my profiles, I use each players' best 6 season percentages as the way to measure their offensive peaks, so to avoid any thought of my cherry-picking stats, I will stick to the 6 season range here.
Combining the best 6 seasonal scoring percentages of the Watson-Savard-Conacher line, they come out with an very impressive score of
. Conacher led the way with 608, followed by Savard with 523, and Watson dragged them down with a 369.
Doing the same with the Hay-Turgeon-Iginla line, they come out with an almost identical score of
. Iginla led with 533, followed by Turgeon at 496, and Hay at 479.
I've been known to make errors in some calculations, so for accuracy's sake, here are the percentages I came up with for mark's players:
Denis Savard - 100(1988), 98(1983), 83(1986), 83(1987), 81(1982), 78(1985)
Charlie Conacher - 121(1934), 121(1935), 100(1931), 96(1932), 95(1936), 75(1933)
Harry Watson - 83(1949), 68(1948), 57(1952), 56(1951), 54(1947), 51(1950)
All of my players have these in their profiles.
What does that mean?
Well, that's an offensive comparison only, but I think it shows that mark's second line is no better offensively than ours.
With Turgeon being softer than Savard, and Watson being quite a bit tougher than Hay, his line brings more toughness. Defensively, I would think our line a little stronger.
