I think the other problem is that people see the great goal scorers Oates played with (Hull, Neely, Bondra) and assume that they helped him rack up the assists.

I think it was the other way around though - most of those guys had career years when given the opportunity to play with Oates.

No Ron Francis yet? He shows up on so many underrated lists he's in danger of being overrated.
