His top 10 were a 5,9,9,9, 10
And that's his absolute best.
Probably doesn't belong in the hHOF and there are few here that are more career guys than me.
Gartner simply didn't do much more than win the fastest skater contest and score at a good but not great rate for a long time.
The term compiler fits him to a T.
