It's too early to put Kovalchuk, Ovechkin and Malkin on this list. Perhaps Datsyuk, but he wasn't always a dominant player. He'll need a few more years of this production.

And for the record Kovalchuk isn't even close to what Kharlamov was in his prime.

I don't think you guys realize just how good Kharlamov was in his prime. Bure isn't "the Russia rocket", that nickname belongs to Kharlamov.

That's not great, that's POETRY IN MOTION.

Don't let those videos fool you, those Canadian defenders were going at full speed, it only looks like they are standing still.
