Neither are good indicators of NHL playoff success, hell, NHL playoff stats aren't a very good indicator of future playoff success either.

Success in the KHL playoffs means nothing to the NHL, same as OHL success...for me its about player type, and Horvat type players have better success in the NHL's his style of game. I'm not trying to say VN can't or won't impact NHL playoff games, because he can and likely will, it's about the totality of said impact.

Scoring in the playoffs is great, but if you're getting outscored or -14 while going PPG, the impact saws itself off.
Fair enough. I won't argue with this.
