So WHL has been lowest every year but 10-11, where it was middle.
Q has been highest 3 years, lowest 1 year, middle 2 years.
OHL has been highest 3 years, middle 3 years.
Apart from last year where Q was far higher scoring, and 10-11 when O was almost the same the opposite way, Q and O are very similar.
Even with a 0.5GPG difference (as last year and 10-11) the impact on individual players is not that big.
Looking for example at Straka last year, that is an extra 3-4 points a year for him from playing in the Q instead of OHL.
(very basically, not looking at individual team scoring, just overall. 0.25GPG per team difference between OHL and QMJHL, so each team gets an extra ~17 goals per season than the OHL, so an extra ~40 points per team, so top line players like Straka got about a 3-4 point boost (assuming top 3 get ~20-30% of team points, which is about usual.)
