Thank god someone has said it. The guy was a playmaker playing with a grinder (Brian Sutter) and a very good player but not a great one (Joe Mullen). Give him a Goulet or Larmer and his point totals would have been that much better. His playoff stats are very good and he led all playoff point getters in '86. IMO there are a handfull of lesser players in the Hall than Federko. All of whom have been the product of a star or stacked team winning championships.
