Usually the godly or better than human performances are reserved for offensive elites like Wayne and Mario.
and since when did two way hockey players become a fetish?
Isn't the goal of hockey winning games?
If a player, say like Dats can not only score at a high rate but also help out his Dman and goalie in preventing goals become more valuable than a player who simply scores at the same rate that Dats does?
Back to the OP, Mario isn't overrated offensivenley he is one of the best two players of all time along with Wayne.
But as Markz alludes to, if the metric is best overall player of all time then he drops down.
How far depends on the metrics used by those evaluating him.
