Ron Francis deserves Top 100 spot

Kenneth MacMillan, Halifax, N.B.

I just finished reading your special edition, Top 100 Players of All-Time by Position. It was a great read, but I can't help but feel Ron Francis deserves to be on your list.

He has the fourth most points in the history of the game and ranks second in assists behind only Wayne Gretzky, yet Francis is left off the list in favor of someone like Sidney Crosby, who has only five seasons under his belt.

I understand Francis does not have a lot of individual hardware, but Hart Trophies were hard to wrestle away from Gretzky.

I would be willing to bet Crosby ends up with a better career than Francis, but I would say Francis' nearly 1800 points is a much better career than Crosby's 500 to date.
