It is a constant if you consider the NHL player pool as a whole the best competition that is available at the NHL level. You can split hairs forever and spin our wheels, discrediting legends as we go. If we play the "what if" game, Lemeiux's 1988 scoring title should be stripped from him because Gretzky missed 16 games that year.

I don't believe in discounting the talent pool from one era or another. Whoever wins the scoring title this season deserves the same credit as Joe Malone's in 1918 - depending on their margin of victory as expressed in a percentage.
