I'll agree about Gretzky with only 14 games, and he wasn't spectacular in those. But Stevens played a full season at an all-star level, having one of the greatestseasons of any Blues defenceman. He should be considered. Jacques Plante had two super seasons as Blues' goalie, and shared The Vezina trophy. He was almost unbeatable in 1968-69. Even just considering his play as a Blue, when he was hot in 1968-69, he was playing at a level better than any Blues' goalie I've seen, other than Glenn Hall's unbelievable performance in the 1967-68 finals. He deserves consideration as an all-time Blue as well.
