Yes cause Hartford was a playoff powerhouse during those days before Pittsburgh, and a 35+ year old Francis should have been lighting it up in Carolina.

We excuse Selanne for his poor teams in his early prime but then we try to dock Francis for it?

Francis had a better playoff at 38 years old on a losing team than Selanne did in his best playoff season on a cup winner coming off a 48 goal regular season.
