I knew Maltsev was underrated, still, I'm not sure if I can find room for him in my list.
Are there other Russian league awards that were voted on? Like top defenseman or something?
I don't understand/see the connection??? Kharlamov is quite universally hailed the greatest Soviet player of all-time, but not many make a case for Perreault of even being a Top 3 Canadian forward of his time, even though I personally think he is clearly better than Marcel Dionne, for instance. IMO Perreault might be the most underrated Canadian forward of all-time and Kharlamov, well, is anything but underrated.
