47 He had a line of 59-27-35-62 good for 4th in the league (1st on the Bruins)

In a 6 team league he is just under an aggregate top 15th finish averaged out over those years and alot of that boost is form one of his 2 outlier type of seasons offensively.

15ish in a 36(top 6) forward league really isn't going to add alot to his resume.
Not sure how you got 15th. Schmidt was 5th in scoring during those four years:

RankPlayerGPGAPts
1Max Bentley 182 80 100 180
T2Toe Blake 206 79 98 177
T2Billy Taylor 203 61 116 177
4Syl Apps Sr 173 87 87 174
5Milt Schmidt 188 67 99 166
6Bill Cowley 151 46 105 151
T7Doug Bentley 173 60 89 149
T7Bobby Bauer 181 71 78 149
9Woody Dumart 185 78 70 148
10Clint Smith 197 59 76 135

Depending on what cut-off you use, he's no worse than 7th in points-per-game (100 game cut-off) and could be as high as 4th in points-per-game (150 game cut-off).

If you extend this to include 1940 (the year he won the Art Ross) and 1948, Schmidt is second in scoring (behind Syl Apps) over a six year period that sandwiched the three years he lost to WWII. He was T-7th in points-per-game (100 game cut-off) and could be as high as T-3rd (200 game cut-off; behind only Apps, M. Bentley and Conacher).
