Ha, you sound like me. If it weren't for the anecdotes singing his praise and the several All-Star Teams Gilmour got over guys who badly outflanked him, I wouldn't take his two seasons of assist stats nearly as seriously.

also, I wanted to ask because I honestly don't know. Which HHOF committee members were old enough to watch Gilmour play? There had to be a few.

I don't know either. I'll have to check
