These numbers are not in the same stratosphere. Wanna see who they rank near to make it more clear:

Jaromir Jagr 0.75
Nugent-Hopkins 0.75
Bobby Ryan 0.75
Danny Briere 0.73
Ryan Callahan 0.73
Jeff Carter 0.73
Tomas Fleischmann 0.73

Niclas Bergfors 0.46
Andrew Brunette 0.46
Shawn Horcoff 0.46
Guillaume Latendresse 0.46
Mark Letestu 0.46
Linus Omark 0.46
Jason Arnott 0.45

Cally and Horcoff are in totally different leagues offensively! Dude, you're arguing in ******** useless circles, with wrong data no less. If you want to insist a guy who over a three season span finishes top 20 percent in league wide scoring is average, knock yourself out. You want to call him a third liner, when he scores more goals than the average third liner scores points, have a blast. I can no longer engage in this, however. Cheers
I was referring to Horcoff from 2007-06 to 2008-09.

Horcoff during that 3yr span: 154 pts in 213 GP. 0.72 PPG.

Horcoff and Callahan were similar players. Horcoff's body is done and Callahan's play took a big hit too. This is why I want him nowhere near this team in the long haul, because he is made from the same material that Horcoff and Drury are made from.
