One might argue Ray Bourque or Nicklas Lidstrom for recent players.
A 28 year-old Gordie Howe, who led the league in goals and points with 44-45-89; ahead of Ted Lindsay's career-high 85 and a peak Jean Beliveau's 84. Beliveau and Maurice Richard tied for second in the league in goals with 33.
I'll take the league goals and points leader who is physical, good defensively, and a capable playmaker over the league assists leader who barely led his team in scoring and was well off of the league scoring lead pace.
