That's exactly it right there.
Don't know about that last one. Fedorov, Datsyuk certainly score(d) a lot but still won this award. I think Doug Gilmour did as well. And didn't Troy Murray win the Selke with a 45-goal, 99-point season?

You are correct sir (I did a quick search and don't really feel like going through the results, but yeah there are more high scorers on there than I ever thought).
