During that period he was outscored by Jagr by considerable margins and obviously owes a ton of those points to Jagr.
But we are not comparing Francis to Jagr. Obviously Jagr's much better than Francis or Gilmour offensively.

Also, it should be added that Francis was a 90 point player at age 19 on one of the worst teams ever in Hartford in 82-83.(261 goals for - 403 goals against)
