I can believe, in a situation where goal-scoring as a whole declines, it declines less for the elite players than for the scrubs. But it is incongruous for one to go up while the other goes down, except for an effect of the distribution of ice time, and especially PP time, which is possible.
This is why, for comparing elite scorers, some people use vs2 (comparing calculating the player's total as a percentage of the 2nd best scorer in the league) instead of adjusted points. You can also use vs5, if you think #2 fluctuates too much
