Here's a funny stat from last 2 seasons:

First Assists

Player A
11/12: 15
12/13: 7

Player B
11/12: 14
12/13: 9

One is the skilled Desharnais the other is the 'can't be a set up man' Pacioretty.
That's great your reading a stat that means nothing. If you watch the play no matter who gets the first assist who is setting up the play? You can get first assist from rebounds! I guess Henrik Sedin is too one dimensional? Not putting those players on the same level but you get the point.
