my point is not to compare lisin with gretzky but to say that you do not have to be a great 2 way player to be a great player.

and, if lisin isnt a "complete" player defensively, doesnt that make him closer in "style" to jagr, bure, kovalev, heck even kovalchuk and certainly wayne gretzky ??

and i just laugh at all the talk about how wayne didnt play lisin because he wasnt defensively responsible enough when wayne pretty much played the same way that lisin plays.
Let's say gretzky was a 1 dimensional player. What's your point? His other deficiencies were overlooked because he was the best overall player in the game. Are you suggesting that Lisin's talent makes him eligible for the same treatment?
