Also, Eddie Shore would probably be the best PP QB in this series - no idea why he's on a second PP
Defenseman scoring was significantly more compressed back then. The 10th place defenseman was often not very far behind the leaders in scoring, whereas in Salming's era, the elite defenseman scorers were much farther ahead of the pack, making the percentages of the guys behind them look much impressive because they were able to distinguish themselves from the rest of the pack as to how much better offensively they actually were. Wouldn't factoring in era alone into those Vs2 percentages make Salming's look more impressive? The league was 3x as big than the one Conacher played in.
