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.
There's two reasons for the perceived "inaccuracy":

1. Rounding errors to the nearest adj. point
2. deducts the individual player's totals from the league totals before calculating the average, which does cause a small discrepancy (which as previously explained, favors the higher scoring player).

So it has no bearing on who may have been the more valuable offensive player that there was a shortened 48 game season, as well as 80, 82 and 84 game seasons from '91-99?
