Funny bonus playoff fact: Out of 8 seasons together, Francis outscored Jagr in playoffs four times, and always outscored him when the Pens made it past round 1. Selanne never outscored Kariya (granted, just two playofss together).
Funny bonus playoff fact: Francis has never really produced in the playoffs before or after getting Jagr as a regular linemate

Before Jagr as a linemate 56gp 39pts 0.7ppg (Despite most of the season were in the 80s)
With Jagr 73gp 83pts 1.13ppg
After Jagr 41gp 21 pts 0.51ppg

Nice touch with Selanne never outscoring Kariya in the playoffs:

Selanne 7g 3a
Kariya 7g 6a

Selanne 2g 2a
Kariya 1g 3a
