Here is a table comparing yearly average % of the league leaders in goals, assists and points. Walker is compared to the league leader, the others are compared to the 4th place finisher.

PlayerYearsGoalsAssistsPoints
Walker1628.8%44.6%36.6%
Gillies1443.8%38.0%43.5%
Duff1847.2%34.7%41.1%
Gainey1628.4%22.8%26.8%
Olmstead1441.8%74.0%63.6%

Note that Walker's NHA assist lead is capped at 100% by comparing to himself, and many of his other years will suffer from his being compared to Cyclone Taylor. Also his points % will be hurt by assists being awarded at less than 1 per goal during his career. His averages are further hurt by his playing only 1 game in 2 seasons. One he jumped to another league that isn't counted, and the other he went into military service during WWI.

Interesting table. Just curious to why you picked that certain group of players?

Also great pick with Malkin, he was on my shortlist
