Hello Hockey Historians, I was born in the late 80s and didn't follow hockey until the mid 90s when I was in elementary school. The Gretzky vs Lemieux threads got me thinking and researching some of the all time greats in the NHL. I never saw alot of the players that are constantly mentioned like Orr, Richard, Howe and even parts of Gretzky and Lemieux's careers, so all I have to go by are the numbers I dug up on hockeydb.com. so..1 player in particular is Mike Bossy, he won 4 stanley cups and had (if i wasn't mistaken) 8 consecutive 50 goal seasons? How come a player that put up those kind of numbers never in the discussion for one of the greats or compared to Gretzky or Mario? did he score alot of ugly goals? did he play with no flair? and lastly what current NHL player would be the best comparison to Mike Bossy? thanks! and enjoy the new season.
