That is a topic that has long been up for debate. WW2 players are a special case.

The fact remains that various comparisons that contribute to this mythical "all time value" have GP as a base, eg offensive skills are determined by PPG. For the pre WWII goalies you have repeatedly looked at GAA which is a GP influenced stat. So it is very legit to look at GP in determining "all time value".
no, you are talking about "per game" stats. The GP number is simply the denominator of a fraction, which has nothing to do with your gripe, which is the raw number of games played being used as an indicator for a player. Two different things.
