During that period he was outscored by Jagr by considerable margins and obviously owes a ton of those points to Jagr.
How does averaging over 82 points a season at 1.15 PPG in Hartford translate to just a perennial 70-85 point player?

Ron Francis had 9 seasons of over a PPG in Hartford, the same number Gilmour had in his entire career.
