A career of being a very strong offensive performer compared to many other players who will make this list.

seriously? Crosby's played 8 seasons now and has been the consensus #1/2 player in the game for 7 of those seasons. McGee played as many regular season and stanley cup games in his career as Crosby played in 2010-11.

McGee has a scoring title from the FAHL which is good; the problem with that is that the rest of the best players were in the CAHL. He actually tied Jack Marshall (not really a dominant superstar type player) and was just 2 points ahead of Westwick (same)

In his seasons in the ECAHA, he placed 2nd (68% of 1st), 7th (43% of 1st, but was on pace for 2nd and 87%), and 3rd (82% of 1st).
