What are you saying? Does being 14th all time make him a great player?
Im just confused to why you are questioning me.
You said this... and I completely agree.
I like Recchi, but if he a) doesn't start his career w/Mario, and b) hang around forever, are we even having this discussion? Being good for a long time doesn't make you great.
Obviously if you are a good player, remain healthy, and play with superstars then the points will come. Now I was only 4 years old when Recchi started with the Pens, so im no expert. But from what I've seen he was a very good player in his prime. However if he left the NHL shortly after his prime do I think he'd make the hall? Maybe not. The points he got afterwards on a consistent basis is what will put him over the top.
