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.
Look , I agree with you , but I also think Alfredsson has a more gradual career , you can't just count his prime then forgot outside of it he was very very close to his prime while st.louis just basically has a prime.

If you take out the weird 05-06 year , you have eight seasons between 89 pts and 70 pts.What do you do what all of this?

suggest me something then , I completely agree prime is more valuable and that,s why I rank st.louis higher.
