Lemieux: 196 adjusted goals in 204 games for 0.96 per game (1989, 1993, 1996)
Gretzky: 195 adjusted goals in 234 games for 0.83 per game (1982, 1984, 1985)

....I guess that's an argument in Lemieux's favour??
I thought H-R's adjusted stats were prorated to 82 games? Or does it only do it based on schedule and still account for GP? nvm it does it based on schedule only it looks like

In any case these guys lit it up.

One thing I can never wrap my head around is how many PP opportunities Pittsburgh was getting compared to the dynasty Oilers.

If you look at these three years you have chosen, Pittsburgh has hundreds of extra opportunities.
