So no, it's not really relevant in this case. If we were talking about Andy Bathgate you might have had a point.
Andy Bathgate is one of the most underrated players of ever. He legitimately competed for the RW All-Star nods with Howe and Richard (and later Geoffrion); 2nd team in 58 behind Howe, 1st team and Hart in 59, 1st team in 62, 2nd team in 63. This is with his prime behind two guys who are in the conversation as top-five players ever.
