It's a hard statement to believe when Sidney Crosby, Alex Ovechkin, Evgeni Malkin, Steven Stamkos and Martin St. Louis are all based out of the Eastern Conference.
However, the West just wanted to say, "Hey, we can put up stellar numbers, too, fellas."
In fact, these numbers might raise some eyebrows, so there's your fair warning.
Since 2007-08, the number of top 20 point scorers from the Western Conference has been increasing steadily.
In that season, only seven of the 20 were from the West.
In 2008-09, eight of the 20 were.
In 2009-10, half of the them were from the West.
Finally, just last season, 14 of the top 20 scorers were Western Conference players.
With all the aforementioned talent from the East, it's a pretty remarkable feat. With that being said, injuries to those mentioned players certainly played a vital role, but hey, that's part of the game. At the end of the day, or season in our case, the finished product is all that matters.
