If someone else wants to verify which number seems correct to them, then that would be great too (note: does not show adjusted games, so Bourque's actual games need to be multiplied by [82/80] ).
Confirmed. Well-spotted.

So the main reason that HR's adjusted scoring seems to think Lidstrom was as good offensively as Bourque in these years is that it doesn't.
