So all that matters is points? Funny how Wings fans used to say Lidstrom should have won the Norris when he wasn't in the top 3 in points. Now that Larkin is playing a Selke caliber 2 way game, we are going to say that all that matters is points? Jesus. And god, how completely HORRENDOUS is 62 out of 560 skaters league wide when you're 19 years old. What a bum. Time to send him to GR.
BTW, 2 more pts and he's tied for 41st. And he's leading the league in +/- now again.
Nowhere do i say this is horrendous, he's obviously a very good player, but elite means being among the very best of your sport. 62nd in the league puts him as essentially the third best point producer on average for an NHL team, if you want to take elite that deep into the talent pool I guess we're not going to see eye to eye. Also nobody is going to give somebody who has played wing all season any Selke consideration.
Plus minus is also an extremely circumstantial stat, that is only useful(if it is at all) over the long run.
