Interesting. Is Mikhailov really that highly regarded in there? I've thought he has been overrated on hfboards in relation to Makarov who I think was the superior player. But that's just based on reading.

I also think it's arguable. But those are bold statements. It'd be hard to present a case for Fetisov against Bourque. I have Makarov close to Bossy.
