He out-goaled Firsov domestically. We have no records of assists in the Soviet league. Internationally, Firsov showed himself to be a great playmaker, while Starshinov was a very poor one.

Starshinov is a player who I actually soured on somewhat after drafting him last time - especially after seeing how much Firsov outscored him internationally, where assists are actually recorded. His playmaking is terrible for a center (I think it's probably worse than Bowie or Barry, neither of whom should be the primary playmaker on an ATD line). He's definitely a great guy in front of the net, but he needs linemates who can get him the puck when he's in front of the net.
