Yet Kane has scored a career high of 30 goals in 4 NHL seasons (Career: 317GP, 103G, 0.325GPG) and Stamkos has scored a career high of 51 goals in 3 NHL seasons (Career: 243GP, 119G, 0.490GPG). I don't mean to take anything away from Kane, he is a sublime talent, but obviously the Knights system (along with teammates) played a considerable role in his goal totals.
