Ya, and you know what? You are perfectly entitled to that opinion. Remove the stats from the equation altogether. Base it on what you personally find aesthetically & artistically, from a character & talent perspective what you yourself most appreciate. Some of an older generation say Gordie Howe or even Jean Beliveau; others Orr, Lafleur, Gretzky, Lemieux. When I think "all round game", I dont actually think of the latter 4 at all, thinking more Howe, Beliveau, a Red Kelly, Keon, H. Richard, Lidstrom, Datsyuk etc. More temporal talents. As for "Best Player Ever", then you get into guys like Lemieux, Orr, Gretzky etc. I classify them on an entirely different plain, sets of criteria.
