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.
There is no way that Langway was a better all-around defenseman than Howe. Howe's peak from 1984-89 was never reached by Langway, even in his Norris trophy winning years.
