#2073995 Scoring Balance

Posted by wingslogo19 on 08 December 2010 - 10:40 AM

It's hard to say what it means right now. Some might think that if a team has a player that puts up points that dwarf's that of his teammates then you can simply shut him down and win because they have no scoring depth, but it's not really that simple.

For example:

Team A - player 1 = 50pts, player 2 = 20pts, player 3 = 18pts
Team B - player 1 = 15pts, player 2 = 14pts, player 3 = 14pts

In that scenario, Team B obviously has the better "balance", but there's no way they should have an advantage over Team A. You can have imbalance simply because a player is putting up so many points that the next highest scorer seems so much lower.

For Crosby and the Pens, I think it's a bit of Crosby dominating right now and some injury problems they have. Cleary, they don't have the same depth of the Wings, but I also wouldn't call them a one man show either just because Crosby has double the points of the #2 scorer.

Look back to Edmonton in the 80s, Gretzky outscored his teammates by a staggering amount, but they still had plenty of scorers without him.

You make a very good point in that.
