The question is simple, but when it was used in another thread to imply that Gretzky was the best offensive player from '91-99, then I believed it was a bit misleading and wanted to make it clear why. Gretzky built a big edge in '91 & '92 (284-126 actual, 254-112 adj.), due to large gaps in both skill and opportunity (Jagr on 2nd/3rd line with very little PP time), which were magnified by the higher league GPG. Gretzky had a small edge in '93-94 (195-193 actual, 171-166 adj.), and then Jagr was substantially better than an older Gretzky from '95-99 (543-399 actual, 626-454 adj.).

Who scored more actual points from '91-99? Gretzky
Whose was more valuable offensively during that time? Jagr
Who scored more points in most of the seasons? Jagr

I don't believe Gretzky's edge in actual points indicates that he was more valuable offensively over those 9 years. I hope you enjoyed yet another "simple" answer.
