Ah yes, but if Smith slides into the #5/6 spot, he spends more time against weaker opposing lines hypothetically bosting his stats, and Kindl in the #3/4 spot maybe fares worse that Smith does.

 

Whatevs, I like them both. Just playing devils advocate.

 

That argument is a wash because it goes both ways.  Maybe with more ice time and better teammates Kindl increases his stat advantage even further.  And I'm not simple talking about Kindl leading in points or goals.  He also hits more, has more blocked shots, more takeaways, fewer give aways, more shots, fewer misses, and on and on and on.  He was simple the better player this year.

Which is why Babcock played him less than Smith in the playoffs? Is your argument that Babs wasn't basing that on performance?

Clearly, as every indicator of performance suggests Kindl is the better player (right now).  And it's not unlike Babs to give guys ice time based on anything other than how they are currently performing.

Not allowed! You have to like and dislike one or the other. You cant be reasonable or patient.
