Swing and miss.....

Don Smith scored 28 points, and Newsy Lalonde scored 27. You are correct that Lalonde missed time, but that doesn't change who the leading scorer was.

Barry Pederson was moved back to the offensive role when Kasper returned since Kasper did not have the offensive skills.Post 1986-87 with the Canucks, after Patrick Sundstrom was moved to the Devils. Pederson was the only defensive center alternative.Check the rosters for the Canucks during his stay.
I did check the roster. I also checked the stats, which show that Pederson was the match-up guy in year one, but he was used less in year 2, and even less in year 3.

Jonathan Quick took a 15th place team to a SC championship. Other retired MLD goalies never managed such a feat and most needed the stars to align properly for them to win a SC championship.
That's a great season. How good was his 2nd best season? 3rd best, 4th best, 5th best, etc?

Paddy Moran had to beat two weak challenges Sydney and Halifax,but no PCHA team. McNeil and Karakas had to be relieved in the playoffs due to injury or poor performance.Johnston was a back-up.
Paddy Moran was an elite goaltender for a long period of time. That outweights a single great season.

The best comparable to Jonathan Quick is Normie Smith - 2 SCs in only three full NHL seasons plus two half seasons and a few games.
Yet Normie Smith is an ATD regular goalie - 2012 drafted #661 by Chaosrevolver. Again ageism is the only explanation for your persistent denials of Quicks accomplishments.
It is true that Jonathan Quick and Normie Smith are comparables. Unfortunately, though, Paddy Moran is much better than both of them.

You can cherry-pick all the worst ATD picks you want, but it doesn't prove anything about your player. All your doing is showing why they ATD picks were so bad.
