Competition against peers isn't constant.
Holding things like that against a player is a bigger crime than giving them credit for what they did accomplish. It is like the "what if" game people play with Lemieux. "What is" is far more important than "What if". If a player beats the best the NHL can offer, he deserves his accolates - not questions about "what if" some other guy played that year or was injured or was at war. "What if" is garbage. "What is", is everything.
