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.
I assume short-handed is also excluded and 4on4 is included - correct? Gretzky was especially deadly 4on4 (before the league changed the rule) but also pretty impressive when short a man.

This is interesting but I wouldn't read too much into it. In gretzky's case, 64% of almost 2000 pts is a lot more than LeClair's 73%. Still interesting though.
