That's if one buys the list as all of them being better.
Bourque was listed so that's why the 30 years. As was Yzerman and Chelios.
That's a side issue anyways, we saw how Keith stacked up against his peers in goal scoring.
My main point still stands, there is no way any Canadian guy with the "06" advantage scoring 2nd in goals against his peers during his career doesn't make the HHOF, and quite likely the top 100, in the history section.
As it is Keith was 4th in goals, against his peers for his career and he brought toughness to the game as well. He played on weak teams, has a poor playoff performance and gets the Dionne treatment, despite not just being a guy who scores.
Maybe it's because everyone remembers how he looked at the end with the picture that was posted.
Playoffs and legend aside, Richard gets ranks 5th all time, despite his highest goal scoring season in a weak war year and it's considered a joke to mention Keith as a top 100 player of all time?
Different standards for different eras is the problem here IMO.
