Crosby's definitely been on the low side, which means he scored a higher proportion of his points on PP/SH than your average star. That's especially true until the past two (partial) seasons, as he scored 57% at ES in his first 5 seasons. Most players tend to score a higher % of their points on PP in their last few years, which brings down their career % at ES. Also, there were fewer PPs in the early mid-80s, so players like Trottier, Gretzky, Kurri should have a slightly higher % of points at ES.
