Small samples. You can always find subsets of data in a large dataset to show something like that. Just so happens Gaboriks poor start is at the beginning of a year and in a short year so the numbers aren't masked by previously good numbers. These are pretty much all guys who have been consistent 70+ point guys (almost with the exception of Nash even)
This is nothing new and not anything that hasn't happened lots of times before.
Your use of stats is always pretty cool to see.
Youre like the Elias Sports Bureau with this.
One major caveat however is that Gaborik's points this year are in bunches. Something like 10 games outta 32, if even that.
