That's the thing...
As a forward, Clapper ranks IMO slightly below Dillon (and his stint a F spanned pretty much the whole Dillon's career). And considers that Dillon scored much of his goals while playing second fiddle to Bill Cook.

Then, Clapper was outperformed by Seibert during their relative stint at D... and that doesn't take in consideration that Seibert was an elite D before Clapper was switched. (and more an elite D than Clapper being an elite winger, I might add). Unless you think two all star berths in 41-42 fills a gap between 200th and 60th, go ahead, but please, insert Jack Crawford in your list next time.
