If getting into the playoffs depends on that tiny increment (averaged out to one goal every 9 games and assumes equal ice time), then the team is too fragile anyway.

I care that in a western Conference Final series against Colorado, the guy comes through in the clutch. His whole style of play screams "kind of role player a Cup winner needs to have." That's what I care about. And that is why teams wanted him at the deadline.
I never intended the post to mean that his scoring 50% more goals would bring The Stanley Cup to St. Louis. And I DID mention above that if he does so based on increased playing time it would be indicative of a weak Blues forward corps.

I was merely happy for him that he played well and got some recognition for it on the international stage. Sorry that I'm causing wasted space and time here.
