You are wrong about Kopitar and Koivu. And you're just repeating what I've said: Getzlaf is more NATURALLY offensively talented than Kopitar. However, Getzlaf is very rarely in that mode. He was in it to get a contract. He's got insanely inflated numbers right now, he'll come back to earth.

And to whomever mentioned it, yes, Corsi is a measure that strongly correlates possession, and Kopitar is elite at it.
