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.
You still haven't defined what you mean by "accurate" in this context. The idea that total adjusted stats over several seasons
be in the same proportion as total raw stats over those seasons is contrary to the intent of adjusted stats. You can call that "inaccurate" all you like, but that's the whole point of the adjustment: to account for how plentiful scoring was in each season.
That is, if you call it inaccurate, you're missing the point.
