Points are accrued differently in different leagues. A good system and solid team play goes a long way towards producing points consistently, regardless of the league. The NHL happens to be the best league in the world at those things, so some players would produce better in that league as opposed to others where they literally have to do almost everything themselves.
I know some of the Oilers young guns said they found the NHL easier to play in than the AHL in some aspects because it was more system-oriented and you could rely on your teammates more in terms of positioning and controlling the flow of play.
Semi un-related: in the few KHL games I watched, I found the the rate of play fairly lackadaisical at most points.
Took a bit longer than I predicted but Malkin's now left Radulov in his dust. Mozyakin is no slouch either, he has proven to be one of the top two scoring treats in the KHL's short history(3 points behind Radulov in career points right now). Even still there's no doubt Malkin's presence and the attention that he gets has allowed Mozyakin to become even more productive this year. If he were to maintain his current pace he would set a new league records in points and ppg at 1.59 and Malkin would have the second highest single season ppg at 1.53
Thing is I doubt Mozyakin can maintain that pace. As for Malkin, well we all know what he did in the second half of the season last year...
64pt in 40gm 1.6ppg for those who don't remember
oh and he also happened to outscore Stamkos in the second half 33 to 31
I was watching it on my TV and Malkin was absolutely unstoppable in that game, that was just crazy. That 2nd goal was sick. He had some other spectacular actions which didn´t end up in goals but that was really fun to watch.
Kulemin looks pretty sick with Geno - another 2 goals and 13+14 in 30 games. Pens should try to get him last season when he didn't look that great... Yeah, I know, the team just doesn't have pieces Toronto would be interested in...
