I also see no case for Neely having a better career than Fleury. Neely had a shorter career and never went past 92 points while Fleury did it regularly. I'm not one of those people who says "well he got in so he should too" but I will point out that both Bure and Neely supporters would have a hard time providing evidence that Fleury had a worse career.
You don't see how Neely was better than Fleury? Really? He was one of the best scorers in the world, and essentially created the power forward role. Bure was the single best goal scorer in the world for a time. Both guys had injuries that derailed their success. Fleury had strippers and blow to derail his success. Fleury isn't even close to the same level as Neely or Bure.
