Another point.

Not only was Park a great offensive talent, but he was probably the best checking defenseman I ever saw on the Rangers. He used to routinely flip players over his hip and send them flying through the air, and he did not care who you were. I remember him doing it to Gordie Howe and Beliveau.

Toss in that he would fight any goon in the league and you have a player that if playing today would be revered here.

But Don Maloney is more deserving. Unbelievable. Not really. People often look at a stat book and proclaim certitude never understanding that they don't have a clue.
