2005/060.458 0.7531.211
2006/070.500 0.735 1.234
2007/080.530 0.682 1.212

Even if you normalize the data to consider league wide scoring Pizza still comes out on top (I used 5.605, the average goals/game over the 4 years in question).

WCE G/g A/gPts/g
2002/030.484 0.622 1.106
PIZZAG/g A/gPts/g
2005/060.458 0.753 1.211
2006/070.4880.717 1.205
2007/080.5550.715 1.270

The only thing WCE had going for (to any significant degree) was the physical presence of Bertuzzi which Pizza had nothing to counter and durability.
Normalizing the data made the 2002/03 score drop but not the 05/06, kind of strange.
