let me offer some assistance with Johnson and Babych.

Both played wing on the PP throughout the 1980s and had similar length careers.

Babych averaged 17 adjusted PPP per 80 games, playing 42% of the PP time.
Johnson averaged 20 adjusted PPP per 80 games, playing 49% of the PP time.

Per unit of PP time they produced at practically identical levels. Due to a higher level of experience (both in PP time and total games), you can expect Johnson to be more reliable there, I'd say, but the gap between them is incredibly minimal especially when you consider Babych can play roles on the PP that Johnson can't (digger, net presence).
