Dreak's numbers:
89, 87, 86, 85, 83, 80, 80, 78, 75, 70, 70, 67, 61, 52
Sturm's numbers:
89, 85, 82, 80, 78, 78, 77, 75, 70, 69, 67, 61, 52
The top season and the bottom three seasons are the same, but the middle is quite different. A simple misunderstanding of my system, which is hardly rocket science, does not account for the strange divergence in results here, nor does a disagreement on how one should handle 198889 or 199697. I have tried to figure out how you came up with these numbers  which two numbers you divided to reach 87, for example  and I can't fathom it. The top and bottom are the same, but in the middle, everything is a few percentage points higher. Curious.
I've already posted the exact data I used to come up with the results you see above. Care to explain how you actually generated these numbers?

If you approached it like this the first time, this whole thing would have gone a lot smoother.
Give me a few minutes to run through the process again.....
Edit:
Ok, here is what I got...
1989 – Rob Brown (5th) – 80 (should have been 77)
1990 – Mark Messier (2nd) – 83 (should be 82)
1991 – Adam Oates (3rd) – 70 (should be 69)
1992 – Brett Hull (4th) – 87
1993 – Pat Lafontaine (2nd) – 89
1994 – Sergei Fedorov (2nd) – 78
1995 – Eric Lindros (1st) – 67
1996 – Joe Sakic (3rd) – 80
1997 – Paul Kariya (3rd) – 86
1998 – Peter Forsberg – (2nd) – 75
1999 – Teemu Selanne (2nd) – 61
2000 – Pavel Bure (2nd) – 70
2001 – Patrik Elias (3rd) – 85
2002 – Markus Naslund (2nd) – 52
I looks like I did make errors on the first 3 seasons. Apparently, I did use 70s' method on the first three seasons before switching back to your method. Whoops.
Dreak's corrected numbers:
89, 87, 86, 85, 82, 80, 78, 77, 75, 70, 69, 67, 61, 52
Sturm's numbers:
89, 85, 82, 80, 78, 78, 77, 75, 70, 69, 67, 61, 52
Looks like the differnces are in 1989, 1992, 1997, and you missed the 52 in 2002.
