I find this interesting when you pull out some numbers by year:

PLAYER Year G A P
Lemieux 1989 50 74 124
Yzerman 1989 55 68 123
Gretzky 1989 46 75 122
Robitaille 1989 44 46 90

PLAYER Year G A P
Lemieux 1993 56 59 115
Yzerman 1993 46 59 104
Selanne 1993 62 37 100
Oates 1993 24 70 94
Turgeon 1993 41 52 92
Robitaille 1993 44 47 91
Recchi 1993 41 50 91

PLAYER Year G A P
Gretzky 1990 31 83 114
Yzerman 1990 46 47 94

Yzerman second in 89, 90, and 93.

How far back do the numbers you used for this table go? I see Trottier, but I don't see Lafleur. But Lafleur is on your earlier lists. I also wonder what the numbers are for seasons such as Yzerman's 87-88. He had a total 50-52-102 in only 64 games; HR's complex method puts him at 42-43-85, compared to 54-74-128 for 88-89. Assuming a similar ES/PP/SH distribution between the two seasons, this would suggest Yzerman's numbers *should* come up around 82 points for 64 games using your method, which suggests 102.5 for a full 80 - again second place. But without the actual numbers in hand, I can't make the calculation.
