Again , Conacher won't be able to do in the ATD what Jagr did in the NHL.In order to re-create what happened in Pittsburgh , Francis would have to play with Maurice Richard basically.Anyway Conacher is a great player , I'm not downplaying him , but Jagr dominated the NHL which was a weaker league than the ATD and Francis was with the absolute best EV player on his line and his record got boosted in those very specific years , you have the right to judge it any way you want , I choosed to conclude his offense was boosted because of Jagr and not because he stepped up his play.
Conacher is also going to face a tough LW line with Denneny-Elias-Ramsay (but that's not the point of the post)
