This is based on data from my research going back to the 1910 beginning of the NHL's predecessor, the NHA. Keep in mind that the goal was to deliberately NOT over-reward players from before 1927 when the NHL became the sole top league. My research can be found here:

Shuvalov, a 1950s Russian, is obviously not a part of this study. Herb Jordan also was past his prime when the scope of this study began, so I used his actual results from those leagues. For transparency purposes, here is what I did:

1903, 1904, 1905, he was the 2nd leading goal scorer. I credited two of these as Top-2s and one as merely a top-5. There is always the possibility of a better scorer being in the other leagues, but the two times he came 2nd to Bowie are huge.

1906, he was 6th. Since it was like a half-league, that equates to roughly 12th so I called it a top-15.

1908, he was 4th. Same primciple - this goes in the books as a top-10.

1909, he was 2nd to Marty Walsh. Walsh was the world's top scorer at this time. There was no comparable league out there. I called this a top-2.
