I suppose the gap is closer than a lot of people think, but I really don't see much of a case for Alfredsson over Perreault. Perreault finished 3rd, 4th, 5th, 8th, 9th in scoring as the catalyst for his line, while his home scoring totals were significantly hurt by rink size.

Alfreddson finished 4th, 7th, 9th, and while he wasn't a leach by any means, was only really the catalyst for his line the year he finished 7th (the weak 2003-04 season).

I get that Alfredsson was much better without the puck, but those offensive numbers are not close, especially when put into context.

I'm sure percentages make Alfy look better, but I'm not convinced of the utility of percentages when it comes to top 5 rankings.
