I just want to clear up a thing.
Czech Your Math:
In your Art Ross rankings for each player, you removed the competition from US and Europe for every year?
Like for Ovechkin, he played in a league with only one Euro (himself) and the rest players were Canadians?
If that is the case, then the study is interesting but a bit misleading. How do we know the influence of team-mates? Too many factors to consider. But I agree that winning the scoring title was probably easier before the competition arrived from US and Europe.
Just not sure if this is a legit way to look at things. But then again, there is no perfect way. But if we take a look at the past from many different angles, it will give us a better picture when combining them.
Offensively speaking, there is many 90's players who gets a bit underrated due to the lack of hardware.
Was Kariya in his prime a player who you would think of being able to win the Ross? I would say yes. That is exactly what your study suggests.
