Not a joke, just subjective. Wendel had an injury plagued career that prevented him from compiling an impressive statistical record. But on the other hand, he's Wendel Clark. At his best he could singlehandedly turn a game around with hit, a fight, or his incredible shot. He was the only bright spot during a bad time for the Leafs, and he was absolutely *loved* by the fans.

I wouldn't describe him as one of the greatest, but I also wouldn't hesitate to say that he's one of my favourites.
