Had he played obviously a far more dynamic & entertaining series. Would he or could he have won it single handedly? No. Wasnt Superhuman. Couldnt be out there for the full 60 minutes and in top form, top speed. He was fallible. Made mistakes. Could be taken off the puck. Frustrated. But overall, ya, still see him as a major game & series changer. Throw in Bobby Hull, Dave Keon & several more, drop a number of that teams picks, a healthy Ed Giacomin, serious Scouting & Training Camps, a super series but one that Canada would have won Im certain hands down as opposed to hanging on by their fingernails & gutting out wins. Couldve been so much more. Unfulfilled potential.
