If you're a forward and have one goal in 57 playoff games, you shouldn't even be considered.
You may not bother to consider him, but whether he shouldn't be is another question.
Gordon has a goal and 7 points in 52 playoff games.
Malhotra had 2 goals and no assists in 35 playoff games.
In both cases that tells virtually none of the story.
In both cases these guys win in the 58/59% of faceoffs and generate 15 or 20% more offensive zone starts than they themselves get.
They are shutdown centers and judging them by their point production misses the point of their role. The guys who benefit from those 15 or 20% of additional offensive zone starts that these players generate are the top 6. If people wonder why the Sedins are not producing quite as much as they expect, part of that is the territorial advantage that is normally generated by the bottom six isn't quite there this season. Henrik is taking more defensive zone starts than ever. It's a waste of his energy, but necessary under the circumstances. Guys like Gordon make the rest of their team better.
I'd love to see him added - he's also a guy with very good speed, and his 10 points and even =/- in 35 games playing the role he does is actually fairly impressive.
