I never said his numbers were all world but come playoff time he steps up his game. Ladd over Bickell all day every day. Bickell will never play like Ladd cause he thinks he's more than he is.
And the game 6 goal in the Finals. He scored memorable goals, that is why people remember him more fondly than they should. That goal against the Sharks was a wrist shot from about 35 feet that Nabokov just missed, it wasn't same amazing display of skill. And while it was hilarious he hit Kesler, the guy wasn't anywhere near the puck, it was a pretty cheap shot. Bickell had the game 2 game winner against Phoenix last year. Thats as many game winners as Ladd had in 36 games.
