4. Proven chemistry with Nighbor.
penalties must be considered a weakness of hooley smith. i think hooley was short for hooligan.

By the way, the table TDMM quoted earlier is selected for Richard's prime seasons and includes a low-scoring rookie year from Ullman. Here's a table with the even strength scoring leaders over Ullman's prime.

Even strength scoring leaders from 1958-59 through 1970-71
Player GP ESG ESA ESP ESP/G
Bobby Hull 888 390 321 711 0.80
Stan Mikita 845 246 383 629 0.74
Norm Ullman 911 281 371 652 0.72
Henri Richard 825 215 375 590 0.72
Gordie Howe 911 267 378 645 0.71
Jean Beliveau 812 230 333 563 0.69
Frank Mahovlich 886 314 275 589 0.66
Andy Bathgate 756 202 286 488 0.65
Alex Delvecchio 924 217 345 562 0.61

I'm not convinced Ullman is the best fit with Jagr, but I do think he's a good pick at this point.
i don't think ullman would be as good a C for jagr, but he is C for guy lafleur. lafleur did not keep the puck as much as jagr.
