Look at Getzlafs 11-12 season compared to the years before and after... as well as how well the team and other players did etc.

Then look at their shooting %s... (Getzlaf 11-12, G now.)

At that point I remember a big group of people laughing at Getzlaf and how he was not worth the money. And he had Selanne, Perry, Koivu and Ryan to take some of the scoring pressure off him.

Player points are integrally linked to how many goals the team scores/ how good the team is as a whole for the most part.
