Gare's scoring peak is nowhere close to Amonte's. If it was, he'd have landed in my comparative study:

Danny Gare VsX:
78, 71, 63, 61, 58, 51

Tony Amonte VsX:
89, 80, 73, 71, 70, 67, 59, 53, 51, 50

And that's before you compare linemates. Amonte's were Zhamnov and Daze most of the time in Chicago, right? Those guys aren't even MLD players. There is definitely a wide offensive gap. Amonte definitely had some jam to him, even as a Ranger. But I'm no expert on Danny Gare, so it's hard for me to compare them in that respect.
