I know this is probably impossible to implement, but I wonder if a study on linear vs non-linear adjusted point systems would be possible. I mean, adjusted points always seem to blow up on outliers (cue yet another discussion on why Stamkos scoring 60 is way better than Gretzky scoring 92) but it seems to me that typical adjustment systems might fall down precisely because they are linear, and maybe there is a curve (of what form, I don't know) which would better fit the data? This would take a lot of brain power, spreadsheet/database wizardry, and imagination, but it might be worthwhile.
