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.
The reason a lot of players like Jonathan Toews, Vincent Lecavalier, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, and Sidney Crosby fail to reach 70 points is not due to the fact that they're not elite.
