You're going old school, so your post doesn't count!

Actually I totally agree with this type of post. Too much stock being put into the stats area for my liking around here....not just in this thread neither. There are a few "other" things many players bring to the table other than goals and assists. Seems to have kind of passed over some of the, what I would term, "newer" hockey fans heads.
