and with 5 less Karlsson would be in 20th, with 10 more Dallman would have finished 1st in KHL scoring....
Since NHL expansion in '67 (and probably earlier - I didn't check) only Orr, Coffee and Potvin have managed to finish in the top 5 of league scoring as Dallman did. Only Orr and Coffee have finished in the top 6 more than once as Dallman as done. Also keep in mind that Coffee only did this playing with Gretzky or Lemieux. This shows just how rare an accomplishment what Dallman did is.
Top 11 has been done by Karlsson, Leetch, Macinnis, Borque, Potvin, Coffee and Orr. Also very impressive, but not quite to the same degree. It is Karlsson's first year putting up big offensive numbers. If he does it again he will get the recognition he deserves.
