I don't care about goals percentages so I don't track them. Points are so much more important than goals.

You're right that Neely would be closer to Gartner, but there is much more to that comparison:

- Neely did literally everything else better (besides skate)
- Neely had some epic playoff production, Gartner's was horrible
- On a per-game basis Neely was clearly a better producer even if raw seasonal totals don't always show it (and yes, it does matter who was actually better when on the ice)
- Neely impacted the game in a bigger way, Gartner did not
