I agree that a case could be made putting Potvin and Coffey closer than some people might on these boards.

Especially when he led his team in scoring the 1st 4 years for NYI who had a truly horrible team for a while.

Coffey had the higher peak but he played in better situation to pad his stats as well.

I would still put Coffey ahead as Potvin changed his game after his age 26 season and was more rounded and less impressive statwise in the high scoring 80's.
