Top point seasons - 91, 85, 78, 77.
Top goal seasons - 38, 35, 35, 34
First Team all-star in '78, '79 (they looked to be slow years for left wingers)
Has 697 career points in 958 games good for a PPG average of 0.72 and his playoff PPG is 0.57
I personally have no clue how he got into the Hall of Fame with all due respect to him. Is it not supposed to be a shrine of greatness? Clark Gillies was not great by any means. I dont know any opinions?
Four straight cups, five straight finals appeareances, ninteen straight playoff wins, nine out of ten years in a row going at least as far as the semi-finals.
The argument for Gillies goes beyond statistics and to what the Islanders accomplished as a team because of his impact on a game.
