Rookies performance in a shortened season?

With a shortened season, do you think rookies are in a unique and misleading situation in terms of their impact? I believe it's the case that rookies that light it up early in the season sort of taper off towards the end as a gruelling schedule wears them down. With less games, do rookies stand out artificially against the rest of the NHL?

ie. Say Yakupov and Ovechkin score around 35 goals, do people draw the conclusion that Yakupov is in the same class as Ovy?

Nope.

To short of a comparison, 1 season is not enough to compare a rookie to a player that's been at the top of the NHL since he entered.
