When you look at his centers in Vancouver and Florida, it's not exactly a ton of guys getting mentioned in the top 100 players of time either.
In florida Pavel Bure did figure 8's between his blueline and center ice waiting for the puck to be coughed up so he could cherry pick, take off, contributing next to nothing defensively or anywhere else on the ice.

Amazing stickhandler? Yes. One of the best breakaway and one on one guys ever? Yes. But few people were allowed to play that "myself before the team" style. In fact, on most teams it would get you benched to cherry pick that bad.
