I don't know, looks to me that his team work, passing and creativity (possibly anticipation as well?) are a bit high. I say 15 at the peak of his powers for those attributes is just about right, but no big deal. Any one have a screenshot for the NY Red Bulls Thierry Henry
Again, very easy to overlook someone's creativity and passing when they can also run through a whole team and score. He had one season where he had 24 assists. For comparison's sake, Fabregas' best 'assisting' season was 23.
