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.
What the crap, I guess Gare was just a really unbalanced offensive player?

50 goals, 23 assists
56 goals, 33 assists
46 goals, 39 assists

were his three best seasons.

Edit: His 50 goal, 23 assist 1975-76 is particularly strange since he was playing full time with Ramsay and Luce then and rarely played on the powerplay. Normally when you see such an extreme ratio, you think the guy played with a great playmaking center, but he clearly wasn't playing much, if at all, with Perreault then.
