... but then again I do rail against the Dick Duff induction.
to me, mullen is a clear step above all those other guys. i mean, when you have playoff scoring finishes of 3, 3, and 5 and twice led the playoffs in goals, i think that puts you beyond the "hall of very good" or "needs more american representation" guys.

he's still probably a borderline guy according to most people on the board's cut off points, but i find it really hard to look at mullen's career and tkachuk's career and say i'd rather have had tkachuk on my team, either for a peak season, for a prime, or over an entire career.
