My only point is that Bondra's career was almost entirely in the dead-puck era. So his 503 goals (500 goals at least puts you in the conversation for HOF) are worth a heck of a lot more than the goals earned during the 1980's (for example)......that his 503 is a heck of a lot better than it looks on the surface. And to just dismiss him as a one-dimensional goal scorer who barely made 500 goals is not a fair analysis.

Ziggy Palffy has 329 career goals, and no one is making the case that he is a HOFer.
