I don't really buy the defensive team thing as much. I'm sure it hurts his totals a bit but not as drastic as some make out to be.

For example Simmonds put up 40 points under Terry Murray one year mostly playing on the 3rd line but everybody credits his offensive output now due to playing for an offensive team like the Flyers.

If a guys offensive enough he'll find a way to get his share of points regardless of the system.
