If the correlation is very strong for all 4 years, I would assume it would hold for their entire careers.

I don't have time to do it now though.
Maybe but a % of PP time can be extremely subjective on its own.
The more successful one is, the higher the % of PP time he will have as obviously, the majority of PP's end when a goal is scored right

What site has total team PP time?
NHL .com only goes back to 02/03.
