You may weigh offensive talent heavily in considering who is one of the best thousand hockey players of all time, but the fact is a great hockey team always has several role players: penalty killing, checking, energizing, agitating, enforcing, shot blocking, etcetera.

The ATDs have always respected those aspects to the game.
As I said, in an ATD sense, your assessment is not wrong. But if the goal is to list the 1000 best hockey players ever, the names O'Neill and Cheechoo will and should appear long before Hannan and Laperierre.
