Gagner's numbers are pretty low compared to other offensive centers in the league. I noted a handful of guys who also didn't score a lot of clutch goals early in their careers but have gone on to be pretty successful.
I think team wins plays a big part as well Oilers have had worst win loss in those 6 years , a better comparable would be gwg gw apples pro rated into wins imo. Otherwise pretty skewed stat.
