My post about Bernie Nicholls was a half-joke. I just do not understand people that are blinded by the stats like they are the only criteria in hockey.
It is fine. Also, Lemieux is one of the 4 players that has even remotely reasonable arguments for being the best ever. Although i would think you are in the minority on that one. Lemieux is more often 4th than 1st.

It is hard to be overrated when you are arguable the best ever.

I think there is more candidates for overrated than Gretzky. Maybe Fedorov is bit overrated, but not by many and for the counter-part he is underrated by some. I guess Feds is the kind of player that gives a wrong impression if looking too much about stats.
