Basically, players who had a good 2006 should get full credit IF it wasn't an outlier for their career, but I don't take outlier good or bad performances very seriously in 2006. And it's not just because I drafted St Louis - I was saying this last year too.

(No issues with 2006 playoffs - by the end of the year, things were basically back up to snuff)
I don't think an off year is a major sign of inconsistency, and the fact that St. Louis does have the highest scoring 5 year stretch in the chart above should be some consolation.

Iginla is the only player of the 4 that hasn't strung together 5 straight years with more than 70% of the #2 scorer. Yet at the same time he is the only one of the 4 to string together 3 straight over 80%. St. Louis will match that if he does it this season though.
