I believe it all depends on how your page stats compare to your competitors.
I agree with that. If the page is ranking way down, especially on a long-tail SERP, then perhaps the article should go.
In some cases a page can be improved. In our case, we don't have time to improve 14K pages, so deleting poor performers is quicker.
