Norm Ullman did not have a great 1968 playoff????????? Of course not his team did not make the playoffs.

As for the 38 year old Ullman, the performance is relevent in comparison to a 38 year old Henri Richard who despite a weak season had a decent playoff:

Or a 38 or 39 year old Dave Keon:

After all someone grouped Keon, Richard and Ullman together.
