there are many factors to consider and each of them comes out looking pretty good depending on which one you use. Obviously you're playing the "they were top-3 in scoring twice" angle.
Ugh, I hate this method of evaluating players, where their pre-prime years are given equal weight to their prime years.

You do this with Frank Boucher and Howie Morenz and they look like equal players (as Sturm showed last time). But everyone takes Morenz first because he peaked at a level Boucher can't touch. Just like St Louis (and Iginla) peaked at a level Alfredsson and Hossa can't touch.
