Edmonton Oilers Era-Adjusted Leading Scorers

Through 33 years of Oilers hockey in the NHL, how do the Oilers' leading scorers stack up?

While walking through some comparables during our Top 25 Under 25 Countdown, a couple of commenters asked about other historical seasons and how they compared after being adjusted.  We'll kick it off with 33 years of Oilers' history, comparing each of their leading scorers to see how they stack up.

The gist is this: adjust each season as if there were an average of 6 goals scored per game and each team played 82 games each season.  Unlike the comparables I did with Gagner, Hall and Eberle, I did not adjust each player's output to 82 games played, but kept it proportional the actual number of games played each season.
