I don't recall if Bowman elaborated. My guess is that center-men, in general, generate more assists than goals. Despite being a goal scorer, Lafleur played a pass first game once he got to the NHL. In Junior he had far more goals than assists, but at the NHL level it reversed. Jagr plays a similar game.
