You should recognized that Hossa played huge amount of hockey and even such greats like Trottier or Potvin couldnt manage 70+ regular seasons games during or after such big amount of high level games.
how is that the same thing? daniel was on pace to win the art ross if not for the one major injury of his entire 11 year career.

not necessarily saying he's better than hossa career-wise, but peak value is certainly higher, as TDDM is trying to say.

I agree that Daniel peak is higher. No debate about it. All I was trying to say was: if TDMM is arguing for Daniel's peak with 63 games season, I can arguing with last two season of Hossa for his longetivity. And then it's all about if you value more peak or longetivity. Noone cant deny that Sedins development almost ended in dissapointment.
