And Yashin was drafted almost a decade before Spezza.

Do you think that finishing 6th is scoring with Maceachern and Dackell was more impressive than finishing 4th in scoring with Michalek and Greening?
Getting 90+ points with a decent two-way player and a fading winger in an era with a center red line for two-line passes and having a thirty-eight point lead on the second-place scorer on the team, as opposed to Spezza who was six points ahead of Karlsson (a Norris winner!) is quite a bit more impressive.

Yashin had 19 PPG and McEachern, Dackell and Johansson had 20 (!) combined.
He had fifty-nine more points than the team's top-scoring "D", noted right-hand shot and radio personality Jason York. who had 35 points.

Yash isn't making the HHOF though so it's a non-issue. I'd be shocked if Spezza made it as well, he's compiled well but hasn't yet lifted the Senators on his shoulders to a Cup win.
