In a lot of other respects they are hair-splittingly even. Is there an area where Francis has a huge, obvious edge to make up for at least one of Gilmour’s?
Top 15 finishes
Francis: 8 (4 from 1995-1998 with Jagr)
Top 20 finishes
Once you get past Gilmour's three year peak (where he got significant Hart votes all three seasons), Francis starts to look better.
