Just ran over the figures... and if the top guys maintain the same pace they have all year, they will end with:

Malkin: 101points
Stamkos: 100 points
Giroux: 99 points
Spezza: 87 points
Kessel: 87 points
Kovalchuk: 83 points

These guys, Datsyuk, Lupul and Eberle are the only players on for even PPG pace this year... 4-6 other guys have a shot at it, namely Karlsson, Hossa, the Sedins, Elias and Tavares, reckon only 2-3 of them will hit PPG

Shows how dominant Malkin, Stamkos and Giroux have been.

There is also a decent chance no player will hit 100 points, last time that happened was 03-04. Since the expansion this has only happened three times (excluding lock out shortened season.) 99-00, 01-02, 03-04.

If Malkin wins the Art Ross, he will be the first new multiple winner since Jagr in 97-98. (Though to be fair, between 1980-81 and 2000-01, only three guys won it! Gretzky, Lemieux and Jagr.)
