From 1974 - 1976 Steve Shutt's primary center was Pete Mahovlich.

From 1976 - 1979 Steve Shutt's primary center was Jacques Lemaire.

From 1979 - 1981 Steve Shutt's primary center was Pierre Larouche.

Each of the center's that played for Steve Shutt seemed to have no decline in their own goals scored.

Needless to say Mike Gartner seemed to score goals with a multitude of different centers.

But two examples.

1980-81 Gartner scores 48 goals. His center Denis Maruk scored 50 goals.

1984-85 Gartner scores 50 goals. His center Bobby Carpenter scored 53 goals.

Centering Shutt and Gartner, Frederickson a man who finished no lower than third in his PCHA scoring career should be able to more than hold his own.
