I didn't make them up, they're there.
95/96 has a 1.095% difference between the raw and adjusted totals.
That mean Adjusted stats is only 98.905% accurate for that year.
It varies for every year and at the end of the 9 year total, it has changed from Gretzky being ahead by 1.856% to Jagr being ahead by 1.519% or a total of a 3.375%.
That's only a 96.625% accuracy rate over the 9 years.

No, I made that mistake earlier in this thread and didn't this time. I set them both only to what it works out for 48 games.
I said as much in the post "(I had to redo the '95 season for each to the actual number of games they played and not the pro-rated full seasons it was listing)"
If I didn't do that, the discrepancy goes from 3.375% to 4.7%.
