There is no doubt as to which player I would want out on the ice after the age of 28 and it's Dats.
Need more context.
The r-on/R-off needs to be included so we can examine how much of that is team based and how much of a difference said player is to his team average.
Dats age 28 produced 55ES, 29PP, 3SH +36
Gretzky age 28 produced 101ES, 52PP, 15SH +15
Dats age 29 produced 56ES, 40PP, 1SH +41
Gretzky age 29 produced 96ES, 40PP, 6SH +8
Dats age 30 produced 59ES, 36PP, 2SH +34
Gretzky age 30 produced 103ES, 59PP, 1SH +30
At the 28 year level, Gretzky more than makes up for any ES advantage Dats has by dominating him in special teams.
At the 29 year level, this is the only year Dats looks better than Gretzky statwise. This is also the year that Gretzky plays injured quite often while trying to "sell" the game in the Southern markets.
At the 30 year level, this is once again Gretzky's show. He not only matches Dats' ES ratio but also dominates him in on the special teams front once again.
Either way, at the end of the day, scoring goals gets you wins.
Preventing goals gets you shootouts.
I know which one is more important in the playoff's
