But your statement might be better as "His 1993 playoff run with Toronto was one of the best runs by any forward in the 1990s." Not nearly as dramatic or epic sounding... but far more accurate.
Gilmour in 1993 was at a Gretzky/Lemieux level of impact on games and his own team.
I haven't seen all the playoff runs of all time, but Gilmour's 1993 stacks up with any that I have seen and surpasses most.
Just finished reading your other posts, particularly the one about Gilmour's defense compared to Toews and Bergeron.. lol. Oh boy. Obviously I am wasting my time pushing back because Gilmour must have taken your lunch money or something.
