Every generational talent has had high hockey IQ, from the tiny to the large to the mean to the soft to the scorers to the assist men to the defensemen. Its the only commonality.
Heck, let's just read and see who has the highest hockey IQ from this year's draft. I didn't know drafting was so easy.
The truth (not the exaggerated version) is that every great player will say that hockey IQ is very important. However, I have never heard anyone say that hockey IQ is the most absolute, like you're saying.
