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 perseason basis) the 2010s?

The reason for the difference between 90's and the rest of the decades must have something to do with procentage of ES minutes per game. Did the 90's have a lower amount of penalty minutes? If we count the even strength goals scored over a decade and divide it with power play goals, would the 90's have the lowest "power play factor"?
Also what would a ESG/ESTOI ranking look like?
EDIT: Also, who would have thought Selanne would be this high on the list in ESG average in three best seasons. I thought he was just a normal first line goal scorer.
