I always loved Dale, a smart and very crafty player.

As already noted, he did more with less.

Peter had his whole family with him as well as Goulet.

I have to admit though that I might be a tad biased here as I absolutely hated the Nords, more than any other team and still do to this day.
Funny though, how I don't have a problem with the Av's, Montreal vs Quebec thing I guess and it was freakin brutal.

It's hard to say, I'd say Hawerchuk was better from just what he had and what he did.
Hard to place Stastny and Savard over each other for me though

people are definitely underrating how offensively dominant Stastny was if they say this is close, or that Savard is close.

You don't think Hawerchuk and Stastny are close offensively???

They both peaked around the same level during the same time but in my opinion Stastny had better help on his wings.

I saw them both and I definitely wouldn't say there is much separation between them offensively.. I picked Ducky though.. I just like the guy.

I think all players mentioned are great, i just look at Hawerchuk, his team, his seasons and his consistency post-prime

Well if it's about who we "like" better, sure, let's all pick Hawerchuk.

I'm not seeing how Stastny was more offensively dominant over Hawerchuk by any great degree

I think its close, I think Hawerchuk was actually a little better at his peak to be honest, and I like him.

Plus he has a funny nickname so really its Hawerchuk all the way.

Mostly cause he wasn't.

If Hawerchuks hip didn't start slowing him down he probably would have reeled off a few more 100 point seasons too.. but it was degenerative.

Top-6 in points six times is not something that a lot of players have done.
