I know we butt heads a lot about this but I truly am only arguing it in the cases of really good or bad teams being adjusted by a league average in comparisons. It really does leave out too many factors to be liberally applied without any thought.

Do you seriously not notice or care how crazy the SRS rating of the 76-77 Habs is in relation to the rest of the league?

It is a very simple comparison of a team to its competition and obviously leaves out factors too.. but they are off the charts in comparison to their competition for a few years there.

In cases like that the league wide average just doesn't apply very well at all.
