    I literally said in the post you quoted I don't put it on that level either, but a large number of people do. Statistical performance peaks usually from 23-28, some later and very few earlier that don't atleast maintain it for a bit after 22. Unless you just look at plain point totals for certain players and ignore rises in scoring levels.

    McDavid just had a bigger points/game separation between him and Draisaitl than Lemieux did from Jagr in their last 2 seasons together. Draisaitl is no McDavid, but he may well be the 2nd best forward in the NHL so he is no slouch himself.

    Mario scored 160 in 60 after taking a mid season break for a minor health procedure - radiation therapy for cancer.

    I think that's a little more impressive.
