That's a very important difference. However, he's disputing the entire principle of using adjusted stats to compare players over the same range of seasons. So if '91-94 were all 48 game seasons, that would reduce Gretzky's actual points from '91-99 to less than Jagr's actual points. Therefore, if that had been the case, we can assume Rhiessan would say that Jagr was the better point producer over that time, even though the actual point production per scheduled game of each player in each season would not have been changed at all.
