Having LaFontaine, Hawerchuk, Andreychuk, Mogilny, and Audette on the roster might have something to do with that.

Andreychuk had 28 PPGs that season, LaFontaine had 23 in 57 games.

Out of the Rangers' stars, only Brad Richards and Ryan Callahan can be considered better on the PP than at ES (offensively in Cally's case).

Just looking at goals:

Gaborik - 90/324 = 28% PPGs
Nash - 83/290 = 29% PPGs
Richards - 81/246 = 33% PPGs
Callahan - 35/106 = 33% PPGs

Andreychuk - 274/640 = 43% PPGs
LaFontaine - 156/468 = 33% PPGs
Hawerchuk - 182/518 = 35% PPGs
Mogilny - 141/473 = 30% PPGs
Audette - 97/260 = 37% PPGs

However, I personally value a player that scores at ES more than a PP specialist as I feel such a player usually has a greater impact on the game as a whole.
