I'll take Dats in either 08 or 09 when he was 29 and 30 and had splits of 84/43 and 84/50 for teams that had splits of 257/184 and 295/244.
It's another metric that is more usefull when grouping seasons together to get a picture rather than just looking at stand alone seasons.
This was brought up before and that's why it's good to look at more than one season at a time and why I did the Dats/Wayne comp over 2 3 season stretches.
Gotcha. So what did you say when people pointed out that from 1991-1993, McSorley had a better +/- than Gretzky?
Or that from 1988-90, Bob Errey beats the apparently highly overrated Mario Lemieux?
