But, I really wonder what changed to drop guys Fred Taylor, Joe Malone, Newsy Lalonde and Sprague Cleghorn from the list entirely.
He dropped those guys completely, and he dropped Larry Robinson from the 60s to 100. Was Robinson really that bad from 1984-88?
Stan Fischler is the guy who a few years ago said that he wouldn't put Ray Bourque in his top 100, because he was disgusted by the way Bourque "abandoned" his team to basically bandwagon onto the Avalanche to get his Cup.
