I'm still stunned how long it took for Howe to get in. Bourque and Coffey were the only better defensemen than him during the 80s.

Amonte was 20th in points during his career, and 16th in goals. But he wa only once top ten in points and twice top ten in goals. His career is like a shorter version of Dave Andreychuk's. Not a HHOF career.
