Now for the record I like Federko. I dont have a bone to pick with him being in there so much. He did put up very good numbers regardless of the era. But I have to say that Sittler was a much better player, even all around. Sittler did receive one year end all-star team award (second team '78) and despite not winning a Cup he still had good playoff numbers. So Federko is borderline IMO, but Sittler is in without a doubt.
