(wanna hear something strange I noticed? 1989 was actually the beginning of the end of Gretzky as a dominant even strength player. He was a Hart winner, yet his team was 1.15 with him off the ice, and just 1.10 with him on.)

Lemieux's best 5-year period (1989-1993): He took his team from 0.91 without him, to 1.47 with. In his best 5 seasons with at least 40 games (1987, 1989, 1992, 1993, 1997): From 0.85 to 1.55.

Bourque's best 5-year period (1983-1987): From 0.98 to 1.66. Best 5 non-consecutive seasons (80, 83, 84, 87, 94): From 0.99 to 1.80.

Trottier's best 5-year period (1980-1984): From 1.15 to 1.99. best 5 non-consecutive (78, 79, 81, 82, 84): From 1.25 to 2.36.

Trottier's 73% increase versus off-ice comparables is the best in this bunch, based on best 5 consecutive years. His 89% increase in his best 5 non-consecutive years is also the best here.

Howe's 67% increase would be the 3rd-best out of this group in his best 5 consecutive seasons, after Trottier and Bourque. In his best 5 cherrypicked seasons (81, 86, 87, 90, 92), it was from 0.84 to 1.90, a remarkable 126% increase, easily the best ratio in this group.
Not really on topic, but I'd be interested in seeing these stats for Orr.
