Even with messed up knees he still managed to put up 31 goals in his final 51 games as a Ranger.
Goals per game is a terrible stat to compare players. First, different eras have different offensive outputs. During the 80's goals scored was extremely high while during the 40's goals were very low.
Lastly, as I already outlined, players who had their careers cut short due to injuries will have a higher gpg.
Bossy, Lemieux and Bure are great goal scorers because they were among the best goal scorers when they played, not because they have a gpg.
