While I agree with you that Phil had better cornermen in Boston here is how he did in PPG after leaving

76 1st with 19 3-12 with Boston, 16-62 with NYR)
77 2nd with 15
78 2nd with 21
79 tied for 7th with 14
80 10th had 15 PPG, Phil 13

We ahve to remember that while Phil had years that he led the NHL in Boston like

in 75 (27) and 72 (28)

He also had years like

73 2nd with 19
74 4th with 14

IMO the Ranger affect is getting overblown, certainly in relation to the Orr affect.
