Mickoski: 1117, 1050, 877, 1125, 1088

Why was this happening? In any case, itís good to see they both got the rises and falls they deserved (relative to eachother, at least)

If I erase canon from my head as best as I can, and forget that Sandford is a veteran of five ATDs, I canít really see what would make me take him over Mickoski. (yeah, the all-star games are one thing)

And itís not like these two players would be difficult to compare, either: Their careers overlapped entirely.
Mickoski had a longer career with weaker teams. Throw in Danny Lewicki who replaced Sandford on the 2nd AST for 1954-55:

and Johnny Wilson:

Then look at the 1955-56 Chicago Black Hawks:

LWs were Mickoski, Johnny Wilson, Harry Watson, Ed Sandford. Watson was 32 years old, while the other 3 ranged from 26-28.
