I think the point was, Marotte Marauder saw them both play and feels confident Robinson was not as good an offensive player as Wilson.
And you are correct, Paul Reinhardt was a hell of an offensive Dman also.
I realize their careers overlapped but Wilson losses over 1150 points on adjustment as he played in the most offensive seasons the NHL has ever seen.
Robinsons best offensive season also happened in 76-77 were his line was 19-66-85 (17-60-77 adjusted)
Wilson's Norris year line was 39-46-85 but only 28-34-62 adjusted.
The adjusted stats show more of the story IMO. Robinson isn't the 1st guy that comes to mind when I think about a offensive Dman and Wilson might actually be ahead of him on that count but neither are in my top 10.
