Whether the gap is indeed small depends on how you look at it. If you look at best 3 or best 5 seasons, the gap is pretty significant in favor of St Louis and Iginla. If you look at best consecutive 5 seasons, the gap is smaller. If you look at best 10 seasons, there is no gap.

I never claimed St Louis and Iginla were leaps and bounds better offensively than Alfreddsson and Hossa, though I do think they are a step up.

Edit: remember, we are talking about offense only here
