The argument for Gillies goes beyond statistics and to what the Islanders accomplished as a team because of his impact on a game.
Yeah but it for sure wasnt all Gillies. He was just on a bunch of Cup winning teams if he was a Leaf they wouldnt even flinch at him. The Conn Smythe Trophy winners for the four straight years are: Trottier, Goring, Bossy, Smith. Gillies isnt even near that. I'd put Butch Goring in the Hall of Fame over Gillies. And Goring isnt near Hall worhty to me although he was the last missing puzzle for that dynasty.
