There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that Frank Boucher has had a better career than Marcel Dionne.
He was the best playoff performer from 27-37 yes but I'll leave the Yzerman comp alone.

Funny how Morenz sits well down on that list but ranks way higher than both Dionne and Boucher on the all time list.

Ironically both Frank and Marcel hit the post season all stars 4 times and 8 times respectively.

Frank has 3 1st team and 1 2nd team selection while Marcel has 2-2.

Point finishes are

Frank 2,3,3,4,6,6,7,10
Marcel 1,2,2,2,3,4,5,7

Even before taking into account the larger number of teams for Dionne he has the more impressive regular season record and with a worse supporting cast as well.

Playoffs don't make up enough of a difference IMO, especially with only 2 SC and a secondary role in the 2nd one
