Yep.

There are literally no players in the NHL who play 7th-9th forward (as Couts and Schenn did last year, and may well do this year) on their team in terms of minutes and get 50 points. None.

That is not factoring that Couts and Schenn face some of the hardest mins on our team and start in their own zone more often than not.

At a quick glance, last season Schenn was 9th in the NHL in PPG for guys with under 16 minutes played.
