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.
I think it's just a perfect example of how cutoffs can be cruel to some and beneficial to others.

I like this system as a bit of a "different" look at the better top scorers in history. Maybe instead of a hard "top-10, top-15, top-20 pace" system, it could use certain adjusted PPG thresholds so that there can be more or less than 10, 15, 20 in each category based on the season.
