So he gets dismissed by know-nothings as a guy who barely scored 500 goals and doesn't belong in the HOF discussions.
If you look at his stats, based on his peers, he is the second best goal scorer of his generation (after Jagr).
Langway saved the franchise.
After that, I'm not sure how you put anybody above Bondra.
The fanboy in me would love that Bondra get his number retired. Hell the only authentic jersey I won is a 1992 Bondra jersey. But one has to look also at the league especially the older franchises. Caps messed up on retiring some numbers that shouldn't have.
