Is that what we're gunning for now? Top 50?
Read the whole sentence. 70 points is OK on the top line when you're a beast defensively and you are tough to play against.
When you get all the offensive zone starts and 1st-unit PP time and have no physicality or shutdown ability? Pretty bad.
Points aren't everything ESQ, but they are everything when it comes to what the twins bring. If the Sedins are 55th in scoring they are pretty shitty first-liners.
Rummy, you vastly under-rate the twin's defensive play. They quietly shut down other team's top lines almost as effectively as they quietly score around a point a game. Even as top 55 forwards in the league point wise, they are legit 1st liners. Hank was 20th in scoring, and Danny was 31st, so dropping to 55th is still a pretty good drop, btw.
