Adjusted stats are skewed by rule changes, ice time, powerplay time and other era factors. Level of dominance over peers is a constant. Gretzky dominated the NHL to a much greater extent than Lemieux ever did. Not close at all, really.
Level over peers isn't constant over time, it's season specific and subject to the other factors you mentioned.

Finishing 1st (or in top 3,5,10 ect) is more important than the level of dominance, or lack of it. Everything is subject to context.
