Just to be fair here, Francis did carry the Pens on his shoulders against the Rangers in the '92 playoffs after they lost Lemieux and Mullen for the series.

7 goals and 5 assists in 6 games, plus that game-winning hat-trick when the Pens were on the brink of elimination. Not too shabby. And sure, that's just one series--Gilmour obviously had many many more great playoff moments--but Francis showed he could carry a team when it counted.
