That would make sense...however it's not very consistent with what I'm seeing. Iginla went from 85 (4 white stars), to 84 (3 white stars) in the 2014 offseason. Yet Michalek, and Clowe still have 4 stars but are 83 and 82 respectively. Additionally, Spezza (87) is a 4.5 white star, while Gonchar (88) is 4.0 stars.

I simmed an entire season, forcing them onto the top-line with Tavares. The team went to the Finals, they finished with respectably 40+ point totals, and jumped a whopping 1 and 3 points respectively.
Like I saw mentioned in the Dynasty topic, don't just look at overall points. This year's overall calculations heavily weighs defensive awareness, so they probably have still have a low value in that attribute which is why you didn't see the big jump. Maybe to get them to improve their defensive awareness, you need to play them in defensive situations (ie. the PK).
