That being said, i voted on Bure first becouse he was such a stellar solitary fishing there in his offensive zone.

It was true the thing i once read on the back of a hockeycard that Bure could have scored 70 with a good playmaker by his side, in the dead puck era.
Actually Bobby rarely played on a line with Mikita and didn't need a playmaker. He was able to score no matter who was on his line. He also had his share of injuries but tended to play through them.
