What's better? 92 goals or 49? Raw numbers say that Gretzky's season was 88% better.

hockey-reference's adjusted numbers say that it's only about 5% better.

what's the actual truth? who can ever truly know? But, I can say with great confidence, that whatever this number is, it's a lot closer to 5% than 88%.

Adjusting the figures gets you a better answer, not a worse one. Not a perfect one, but clearly better.

I sure thought it was funny how you said no one cares about how their dominance of their peers compare to eachother. That is all anyone here cares about!
