Exactly. This is the best league in the world and it takes a special player to be able to do that. Most players cannot. And "most" is an understatement. At the end of the day you don't rank Gartner among others by his totals, but you look at his career achievement and you have to hold that in high regard. He just deserves more credit than what he gets around here. How many players even from his era ended up where he did? Heck, not even Jari Kurri with his two 60-70 goal seasons could do it.
