Howe: 2nd, 2nd, 2nd, 6th

Shouldn't need to say who that favours.

I think when rating Langway, many people forget he was getting Norris consideration when he played in Montreal.
A breakdown of Norris shares would further illuminate the comparison, though it should be noted that Langway beat Howe and Bourque by a pretty narrow margin in 1983. It's not often that 1st place Norris votes are that spread out across three players.
