Yeah, all Francis did was take the Hurricanes from bottom-feeder status to winning their division the season he signed with them then captained them to the Stanley Cup finals in 2002. How can that compete with Joseph? That crappy Hall of Famer only led the 'Canes in scoring twice in his five full seasons there. He's such a loser he only finished 2nd in team scoring twice too. What a let down.
And really, how could anybody pretend that Brett Hull, who joined the Stars and gave them a legitmate scoring winger (their best the year before was the long in the tooth Pat Verbeek) was somehow better or more impactful then CuJo? All Dallas got for their investment in the future Hall of Famer was 32 goals (in just 60 games) and a Cup winning tally bringing the franchise their first drink from Lord Stanley's mug. Pfffft, as if any of that matters when you compare it to the Leafs getting to the semi-finals. The second year of Hull's contract in Dallas saw them again advance to the Stanley Cup Final and all Hull did was lead the entire league in playoff scoring. That's great and everything, but it's not as good as Joseph who won *2* games in the quarter finals before the Leafs bowed out. I mean, what kind of idiot would think Hull's crappy "leading the league in playoff scoring" while wearing his cup ring from the season before would somehow be better than Joseph beating the Devils twice in the Quarter Finals?
Do you have any idea how stupid your argument sounds? Do you even care?
