That's approximately what Galchenyuk would be if he has back-to-back 70 point seasons. Maybe you'd like to be pedantic and argue that the threshold is at 65 rather than 70 points.
20 forwards in the NHL made 70 points or more last year.
24 forwards in the NHL made 70 points or more the year before.

Of that group, only 8 did it both years. So 8 forwards in the NHL managed 70 points back to back years the last 2 seasons. Hmm...yah, not comparable.

In either case, suppose we say it's 65 as you said, the number still is selective. Now, if you go 60, you might just say desharnais is a good player, so I doubt you would.
