For this season that was Stamkos (82 games), Spezza (80), Giroux (77), Kovalchuk (77), Malkin (75), Crosby (22) and Aliu (2!). The same holds for top 10 (where the cutoff was 0.988, H. Sedin) and top 20 (cutoff 0.939, Whitney).
Initially, I did not fully understand your methodology. I believe I do now. I still don't fully agree with it.

For instance: In 2007, Briere finished 10th in points with 95 in 81 games (1.17 PPG). Meanwhile, Gaborik had 57 points in 48 games (1.19). From my understanding, Gaborik would receive credit for 48 games at a top 10 pace... while Briere, who actually finished top 10 with 38 more points and .02 less PPG than Gaborik, would receive no top 10 pace credit. I just can't agree with that as anything close to fair.
