Only one remotely close is Jagr and hes got two more GWGs in 35 more games played.

Hes been as clutch as any Ranger in our history IMO.

Some may not like his style of play, but the numbers do not lie.
For reference:

Gaborik has 18 GWG in 242 GP = 7.9%

Larmer had 11 GWG in 115 GP = 9.6%

Richards has 9 GWG in 102 GP = 8.8%

Verbeek had 8 GWG in 88 GP = 9.1%

I can also add that I don't really believe in "clutch" as a significant factor.
