    There's been a lot of threads in the History lately asking for answers to questions, so I thought I'd add one more:

    Does anybody have a list of the players who had the biggest increase in their points-per-game in the playoffs compared to their regular season numbers for their career; as well as the players who had the biggest decreases? Maybe with a minimum of 5 or 6 playoff seasons so one good or bad year doesn't skew the numbers much.

    Just something I'm curious about. I know that Fleming Mackell and Jude Drouin both had huge increases at playoff time, and that anybody who played for Pittsburgh, L.A., or Atlanta in the 70s had their numbers drop in the playoffs. Just wondering who holds the best and worst career marks.

    Hoping that somebody like pnep or Hockey Outsider might have this all on a spreadsheet and be able to get the answer with one click. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Nice list. Some players had really dumb nicknames.
