And face it, that is a big issue. If Cal Ripken had the exact same career but wore a Yankee jersey, people would say he wasnt that good because he never won a championship, and he is only famous because he had a fluke stat.
I won't lie, McDonagh is respected on the board. However there seems to be a lot of groupthink on these boards. Seems like a lot of players get bumped or knocked down just because it's HF. Reading these boards you'd think Messier was a 4th line scrub.
