Would he ever be considered the greatest hockey player all-time? He would have easily had more goals than Gretzky, but I'm not too sure about assists. He only played only 10 seasons and ended his career with 573G-553A-1126P. If his last season was a full season played, he would have easily scored at least 50G, which would have ended his career with every season with at least 50 goals. Maybe he wouldn't be the #1 hockey player ever, but how about 2nd?
