Are they not? Again, I do not see people often mentioning, let alone trumpeting the fact that Kurri had his best years alongside a superior talent, and then use it to downplay his achievements - even when the gap between him and Gretzky was many times greater than that between Francis and Jagr.

1993 and 1994 were not "extremely high scoring years". 1993 was lower scoring than even the lowest from the 80s, and 1994 was only the 6th highest scoring of the decade.
1993 was also the year of extreme imbalance and large amount of very high point getters, courtesy of expansion. Gilmour's totals look huge, but when you look at his adjusted points, it's a whole different story.
