Again I disagree and again say: You may weigh offensive talent heavily in considering who is one of the best thousand hockey players of all time.

I understand that some people think scoring is so important but a peak-and-valley scorer who is slow and dogs it and has a mediocre career overall is simply discounted well past the point where a fast, hard-working, defensively-skilled, consistent performing back-line role player would be on my top-1000 of all time list.

It all comes down to what criteria you use and how much weight you give to each.
