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.
If it wasn't for alfredsson his linemates wouldn't have scored at all. I'm not sure if I would take Alfredsson above Perrault but the gap is not wide between them.
