The problem to me is how he was outscored. Quality of competition etc. I remember Sid Smith played in WC with the Dunlops. He outscored Tumba for example but those swedish teams were often a one line and one pairing team. They basically had nothing beyond that and Tumba was by far the best player on those teams.

Edit: The teams got a bit better in the 60's.
