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
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
