It's no secret that "big points" is trending downward.  It follows the historical goals-per-game data as well, which has been at a steady low level of around 2.75 since the 2011-12 season.  


The last time the NHL had more than one 100-point-plus scorer was in 2010.  The other interesting observation in recent years is the gap between the top scorer and the next scorer. In 2017, and 11-point gap.  2016 (17-point gap).  2015 (no 100-point scorer).  2014 (17-point gap).  2012 (12-point gap).
