Players who are 22 include more marginal players, like prospects who may or may not pan out than later age groups that have smaller shares of GP.

Gretzky, Lemieux, Yzerman were far better PPG producers at 24 than at 31, but top scorers account for a higher % of the games played at age 31 than at age 24, where numbers are dampened by the high number of GP by lesser players.
Good point, makes sense.
