Does Matt Moulson belong on this list? Even if he's done it three years in a row? Improving on goals and points in each of them?

Picking an arbitrary goal total and year can easily put things out of context regarding "worst player" to achieve these results.

Player ability doesn't vary as much, year over year, compared to goals/points totals relative to their unique situations.

I watched Steve Yzerman become a better players his point totals drop.
Ovechkin has become a worse player as his goals/points have dropped.
Joffrey Lupul got a lot of points on the Leafs top line last year, but he's the same player he used to be, just healthier with a chance to play on the first line, taking statistical advantage of the situation.

Some of the best players never reach (or barely reach) 30 goals (like Forsberg, Datsyuk) while some really bad hockey players can reach it on occasion (Prucha, Frolov)

Means nothing.
This post needs more love. Excellent points.
