Everything is to be taken together, not individually.

Alright he had heavy praise from ex-teammates and ex-coach. But also heady praise from a top sports writer and by those who voted into the HHOF. And the fact that he was an all-star in other leagues before the NHL later in his career. And how he's cited as among the greats in talk of the era.

I am utterly amazed at how someone could rely on a goal scoring stat as "objective" and scoff off a ton of other indicators as simply being "subjective".
