Intrepid, are you Canadian? How do you put Paul Henderson, Mogilny, Schultz (!?!?), ahead of The Rocket or Mario? You're insane, man.
Alright, these types of threads are very subjective. But that is no excuse for going off the deep end. Let's put some thought into this.
I base my list on scoring prowess, longevity, overall achievements. I also take into account the era that they played in when it comes to
Marcel Dionne - The third best centerman of all time
Honourable mention: Steve Yzerman, Ron Francis, Mark Messier
Three Left Wingers
Honourable mention: Luc Robitaille, Steve Shutt, Bob Gainey
Three Right Wingers
Maurice "The Rocket" Richard
Honourable mention: Guy Lafleur, Lanny McDonald, Jaromir Jagr
Honourable mention: Serge Savard, Brad Park, Scott Stevens
Honourable mention: Patrick Roy, Bernie Parent, Martin Brodeur
Honourable mention: Scotty Bowman
Obviously, I've had to leave numerous Hall of Famers off this list due to the restriction of having to play their position. My apologies especially
to Bryan Trottier, Phil Esposito and Stan Mikita. Plus, I may have forgotten someone who deserves to be on the list. Again, my apologies.
