I said it in quite simple terms already. He displayed comparable offensive dominance (when the doubling of the talent pool thanks to the europeans is considered) and was better by a country mile defensively.

Even without making any kind of a european adjustment, Alfredsson's best 10 offensive seasons have a combined percentage score of 767. Perreault is at 796, about 4% better by that metric.

Another metric would be hr's adjusted points. Alfie is 6 adjusted points behind on 121 fewer games.

What percentage better defensively was Alfredsson? It's not easy to make a case that it's less than the percentage Perreault was better offensively - if he even was.

Oh, and you could repeat this post with "Modano" in place of "Alfredsson" and it would be equally compelling.
