WTF are you talking about? Greatest goalscorer of the 90's - sure. Greatest goalscorer in NHL history - not even remotely close.

I guess I take a look at a players ability to stay healthy as well. When PB was healthy (about half the time) he scored 50+ goals per season. But if you can only stay healthy half the time, that's a HUGE negative factor IMO.

One quick Bure story. Everyone calls him soft, but I remember early in his career he caught Shane Churla (my most hated player at the time) with his head down and knocked him unconcious with a Scott Stevens type hit.
