In the example of Gretzky from 85/86, his 215 or 52 gaols is excluded from the calculation to figure out the the calculated league avg. gpg.

Is that incorrect?
No that's correct. This means that his stats are divided by a smaller number, since more is taken away from the denominator. And understanding of basic arithmetic tells us that dividing by a smaller number produces a higher result. It isn't complicated.
