True, but goals-against stats are corrupted by goaltending, not to mention the other 4 skaters you are playing with.
I saw Gainey play throughout his career and I am very comfortable in saying that he was the finest defensive forward I ever saw...better even than Clarke or Ramsay, who were very good, too.
And, no, I am not a Habs fan...quite the opposite, in fact. I loathed les Canadiens in the seventies.
