98-99 - 3 minutes less ATOI
99-00 - nearly 2 minutes less ATOI, less PPG
Keep in mind we're talking overall impact on team, not just scoring.
BTW Francis outscored Jagr in 92-93, was close in 93-94, not that far off in 94-95 and close in 96-97 (with much worse PPG though). He was ahead of Jagr in ATOI in all seasons but 97-98. Saying that Jagr made Francis on one hand while considering Selanne Kariya's equal on the other is ridiculous.
Not to mention that Francis murders Selanne in playoffs.
