I guess I'm just being a stat-head, looking at Martin's stats, which don't particularly impress compared to some of the others. IMO, that's fair, considering Martin was basically an offense-only player (and one who was regularly Gilbert Perreault's linemate at that).
Also taking into account that there is a theory that he would have been a HHOFer if not for injuries... well, some of those other guys are actually HHOFers.
As for his All-Star Teams, who was the competition? Very few good LWs in the NHL in the 70s (and early 80s).
