Markov would be the next guy on the list, though. After Markov, you get into the Schneiders and Desjardins.
On a side note, I think Malakhov's best would beat Markov's best, the problem is that Malakhov was wildly inconsistent and seemed to lack the drive. Honestly, when Malakhov wanted to play, he played like a norris candidate. This guy was a 6 foot 6 d-man that could skate quite well, shoot with authority, pass as good as anyone, and if he really felt like it, he could destroy the opponents physically. Malakhov could do it all, but he was just so damn flaky.
Please do not bring back the memory. He was my favorite player back in 1995-2000.
What a wasted talent !
But I think that Markov has better vision, yet nobody saw the real malakhov coz the guy never gave his 100%
