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.

Obviously the careers of the current players would have to be farther along to even think about them on an all-time list.
