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.
It doesn't matter! There is no proof that you score more just by being on a stronger team. These aren't complementary players we're talking about here - they were their team's prime offensive weapons. Your logic says we should adjust their points differently because their 2nd and 3rd lines scored more goals. This type of argument is still a non-starter.
