You made the claim about Jean Beliveau being dominant on the PP. You provided a select 10 season window featuring a table built tp show Henri Richard's ES prowess. Now you are talking statistical prime. Previously you were trying to sell a transition argument for the 1961-64 playoff period.
I am not trying to prove anything, just debunking your claim.
Back to the key point. Your initial window works because the nature of the window conveniently excludes the majority of PP performers because they only played a segment of the window.
Specifically it seems that you may have found a table that supports your view at first glance but would not surprise me if during the window Jean Beliveau never lead the NHL in PP points during the period in question.
