No, I guess not huh & ya, it is problematical from a statistical perspective to analyze. In 67/68 the Regular Season tally was increased from 70-74 Games, with each team playing 50 games within its own division thus rendering somewhat moot any inference that the Blues vs Seals or Flyers vs Kings or what have you, all playing on a level field would be completely dominated by powerhouse 06ers. By 1974 the number of Regular Seasons had increased to 78, then 80, a more balanced inter-conference schedule drafted & executed. More games, more goals. Has to be factored in. By that time, any advantage (excluding the Canadiens of course) the 06ers mightve had pretty much history. Indeed, the Flyers Top O' the World.
