But also with the cap you don't pay a third line center 5.5M. Which is what the average of Richards/Carter is. And it is not just that Stoll wins faceoffs. He is takes the second most on the team and has the highest win percentage doing so. The amount of faceoffs Richards/Carter took this whole year was about equal to what Stoll took.
