Do you understand the difference between 'consensus' and 'unanimity'?
Nobody is saying it's unanimous or that it can't be disputed.
But the consensus from the most credible sources (and his peers, coaches and NHL GMs) is that he's top five. That's fact.
I can't explain it any clearer than this.
Consensus: From Merriam-Webster: a general agreement about something : an idea or opinion that is shared by all the people in a group. I can't explain it any clearer than this.
And again, you are using the facts that you want. Doesn't make it facts. Makes it YOUR facts. You bring me the fact that Crosby named him the best. I bring you the fact that all the others in that vid didn't. You bring me the facts that 6 out of 10 people in NHL.com named him top 5. I bring you the fact that 4 out of 10 didn't.
