Another fallacy that was disproved in another thread.
His goals per game actually makes for quite a nice bell curve. The only SHARP drop off is after the '91 Canada Cup.
But by all mean, you go ahead and keep using the raw totals of his 64 game season in 87/88 and his 73 game season in 89/90 to manipulate a drop off that isn't actually there.
