It has more to do with the limited time span of the sample.

And btw, on such a short sample, Pittsburg almost did it and Malkin was making the big bucks. They had 4 players taking up more than 25 mil on a much smaller cap than today.

The relative smallness of the sample is just ridiculous to make any form of correlation at this point. Those are occurrences that have to do with the beginning of a format, an evolving format that will show new trends once the structure will have given it more shape and the time span will give a much bigger sample.

The way you see it is a perfect example of the texas sharpshooter fallacy.
