To add to the Billy Gilmour commentary above, I just don't think you can really compare the offense of the early era "glue guys" to today. It's a point Sturminator made in his critique of Russell Bowie - roles were more specialized then, so you had the more defensive minded forwards constantly feeding the stars.
None of this is to sell Gilmour as anything but a weak goal scorer, but I really doubt was as weak as his percentage behind the leaders would seem to show. This would also apply to Fred Scanlan, another player considered a star by contemporary sources - Scanlan's goal totals are dreadfully low too, but he's best known for doing all the dirty work for Harry Trihey.
