So again, not a flaw with the system itself.

Not as ridiculous as you seem to think. Bourque in the 12 seasons from 80-91 finished 1st among defencemen in scoring once, 2nd three times and 3rd twice. Lidstrom in the 10 seasons from 02-12 finished 1st among defencemen in scoring three times, 2nd once and 3rd twice. So it's not like Bourque was always at the top of the list and Lidstrom never was. Leading your team in scoring is nice, but obviously the impressiveness of the accomplishment depends on your teammates. When Bourque was among the scoring leaders, he was not the only blueliner there.
