I don't think Abdelkader factored on many goals where he got no credit. If you want to talk about luck, Abdelkader's 10 goals are a product of luck + empty net goals.
Virtually half, so 14 of their goals came on the PP Abdelkader was rarely with them there.
So you have 15 even strength goals for those guys.
That's cool. But it doesn't hurt my argument.
Abdelkader's state-line is still ugly, but not as extreme as your post was trying to make it look
It's doesn't get worse than 4 assists in 60 games.
POINT ME AT THE OTHER TOP 6 NHL FORWARDS WITH ONE ASSIST EVERY 15 GAMES.
Do that, and then you can start accuse me of trying to make things look worse than they are.
Abdelkader is the worst player in the NHL in a top 6 role. And it hurts our team because it diminishes the effectiveness of our top player.
