I mean, how else can you explain the gushing for somebody who produces at about the same clip as Erik Christensen did?
I made a lengthy post on the former page that I wish you had read, it was for you.

But the short version is that I kinda feel like you are mixing production with not relying on teammates who are in too bad form to capitalize on the chances he produces.

If someone would make a "Production produced by passing" statistic I'm sure there wouldn't really be an argument. For example if Richards was able to hit a barn door while standing right infront of the door, the little guy would have a considerable higher number of points, killing all arguments about productivity.
