Haha i don't understand your gartner hate. I mean i've seen your reasoning before but i mean dayum 700 goals and those wheels?

I get he's not one of those generational talents nor even a superstar, but probably one of the best complementary pieces ever.

If he wants to be referred to as a complementary piece, that's fine...if that's the consensus. But too often, I see him on these all-time lists like he was a somebody...skate really fast down the wing, shoot...got it...and his entire career perfectly overlapped with probably the highest scoring years you can carve out 19-wide...one top-5 finish in goals, and it was a year that Lemieux didn't even really play...never finished top-10 in points (he tied for 10th once, with a guy who played 8 less games)...

For 700 goals, he was just such a non-factor, relatively speaking...there's a 0% chance he's even a top-100 player of all-time...I can't even see a scenario for him in the next 100 names really...

Ah, and the light comes on. :idea: That is why I don't get the advanced stats stuff.

I just looked at his stats and that's pretty friggin' incredible. I'd say he was a bit more than just a complimentary player.

There are only 5 players in NHL history with more goals scored. Again, incredible!
