St. Louis generally gets underrated in these things (picked at average 449th spot in last 4 drafts) and Fleury overrated (average 248) - I'd like to see them selected at about 375 and 275, respectively - but I don't see an argument for St. Louis being better than Fleury. Better peak, that's it. If you take out the 2004 season, St. Louis doesn't have much to separate him from a Rick Vaive or a Bill Guerin (yeah, they're primarily goalscorers and he's a playmaker, I know) but Fleury was an elite player for a few seasons.

Say "Theoren Fleury, hall of famer" to yourself, and then say "Martin St. Louis, hall of famer". Which of the two just sounds wrong? (I'd say both, but to say Fleury should be in the Hall is more feasible to me)
