and if you weigh that based on the same formula I used above, Gilmour's weighted "best 10" average is 34.7 and Francis' is 34.6.

no one is going to judge players like this: "_____ was much better at his best, but oh boy, in their respective 13th-best seasons, _____ was so much better than it makes up for it!"

any metric that attempts to take all factors into consideration seems to point to the same thing - comparing them based on offensive output is splitting hairs.

which leaves us looking at other factors. playoffs and hart voting, to start with...
C'mon, it's far earlier than 13th best season when Francis gets ahead.
