Adam Oates would be tearing up today's NHL.

I guess Hull's 2 50 and 2 40 plus goal seasons w/o Oates was an hoax never mind only 114 of Neely's 395 goals came with Oates on the Bruins; that doesn't take into account if Oates had anything to due with the goals.
So tell me, how do you account for the other 3/4 of Neely's goals occurring without Oates on the Bruins?
Yeah, without 50 in 50 Neely NEVER makes the HHOF period. A lot of players posted much better numbers and never made it. I know he reinvented the PF position but without the ring, major awards AND 50 and 50, sorry, no HHoF.
Speaking of Hull, without Oates he would be a Stamkos/Heatley-mix with longevity. Probably would make HHOF on that alone, but with a pretty long waiting list like Dino Ciccareli. With Oates he is the guy who came closest to Gretzky's goal record.
