And keep in mind that Jagr lost a full season to labor strife, plus 3 more to overseas play. The longevity difference between them really is huge when you start taking fragmentary seasons and missed seasons into account (Jagr having 7 more seasons of active play to date, 9 seasons of 81+ GP compared to Mario's 0, 14 seasons of 70+GP compared to Mario's 6, etc...).
I don't think it's Potvin vs Lidstrom, more like Orr vs Lidstrom. Very few people would take Lidstrom in that comparison, but there are a few out there who would and they
do have a rational reason
to justify that choice.
Adjusted points underrate 1st line players from the 1980s and thereabouts by a good deal, since they are based off league average scoring, and not the scoring of 1st line players.
A percentile method like Vs2 or VsX is a far superior method for comparing the offense of players of this calibre.
