People seem to overlook that Bure only led goals-per-game once (the year he scored 9 empty-net goals - but otherwise cut the same pace as Jagr). Twice if you insist on removing Lemieux, as some people do. It's not that high of a watermark that Stamkos isn't able to reach it.
I'm curious, as I didn't know the 9 EN goals that Bure had, if there is a list of EN goals and points somewhere.

They seem to have been more prevelant in the 80's than today but maybe that's just a perception?
