I've been reading these forums for awhile but never posted. I wanted the opinon of the forum about whether you believe that Marcel Dionne is the most under-rated hockey star. It seems he is never on anyone's top list of hockey players but if you look at his career he was a top forward for longer than almost anyone save Gretzky and Howe and that he dominated for almost his whole career. He has numbers and a peak that are comparable to Lafleur except his peak started earlier and lasted longer. The reason is that he played in an obscure market for a team that was not perhaps the greatest of all time like Lafleur did. He was not Ron Francis who amassed points over a long career but was never one of the tuly best players, He was #2 all time in Points when he retired and for 15 years was probably one of the best 5 or ten forwards in the league and was in the top 3 for years as well. So what do you guys think does he fail to get the respect he deserves? Was his greatness over shadowed by Gretzky and Lafleur?
