That's a rather large difference. The "Points aren't the end all be all of hockey" argument generally holds weight when two players are relatively close production-wise.
So here's the question, do you like Pyatt on the 3rd line? In order for him to score he needed 3rd line minutes all season. Averaged 13+ minutes a game. 11 points. 48 games.

You are comparing (2) different types of players.

It's like comparing Ales Hemsky with Ryan Callahan. Hemsky has 17 points in 30 playoff games! Callahan has 24 in 59. Obviously we should take Hemsky.

Hemsky has also out-scored Callahan in the regular season. .755 p/g to .565 p/g
