There are also two seasons from seventies, both Trottier's, but I assume your data only goes back to 1978 or so. It seems weighted really heavily on the 1990s and (on a per-season basis) the 2010s?

- Total adjusted ES points from Gretzky in his best ten seasons: 1,379. Total adjusted ES points from everyone else in their ten best seasons: 1,236!
Because Bossy's career ended much earlier than Trottier's, I didn't have his full ES point data (only ESG). Assuming the same % of total for ES assists as ES goals, his '82 & '84 seasons would adjust to ~110 adj. points, with 4 other seasons in the mid-high 80s in adj. points.

The same issue with the 80s vs. later years. I know there is a more comprehensive ES point database, but it wasn't readily available at the time I calculated these numbers.
