Throw in that he doesn't even make the NHL until age 24 (on a team that was consistently the worst in the NHL defensively) his name really sticks out on the list of offensive guys and Housley's name looks more like the group listed.

I had Pilote in my original top 20 list (around 15 I think) but in retrospect I think he has been listed too highly.
