But only for Yzerman, that way you could get away with saying he would have 4 Art Ross Trophies and two runner-up finishes if:

1. Gretzky and Lemieux didn't exist
2. Yzerman was healthy and no one else was
3. Yzerman was abnormally consistent, with his peaks of 155 and 137 points being spread out to turn seasons of 82/102/103/108/127 points into uniform 129 point seasons

Do you not see how far you've strayed from reality? Without Gretzky and Lemieux, Yzerman wins one Art Ross. Just one. Not four. His points-per-game finishes are as follows: 3, 4, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9. His points finishes are: 3, 3, 4, 7, 7, 12, 34. And you're trying to give him an Art Ross in the year where he finished 34th.
