I still remember my discussion with monkey_00 at the end of All-X2 where he rates Marty McSorley a better player than Doug Mohns because McSorley played both forward and defense.
Lol yes, Red Kelly was so not a superstar that the 3 year HHOF waiting period was waived for him when he was inducted in 1969.
