IIRC, Stasiuk once led the league in ESP... or he was 2nd, or 3rd.

It's the combination of not being that great offensively at even strength and a relatively short career that gives me pause when looking at Sanderson. He can definitely do his thing on an ATD 3rd line, but I still think he's always been a bit overrated in this forum.
Sutter had that one huge season because he played with Bossy due to a Trottier injury, no? I'm not sure that makes him any better; it was all situational.
