Bourque accomplished more than each guy:
NHL First All-Star Team (1980, 1982, 1984, 1985, 1987, 1988, 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1996, 2001)
NHL Second All-Star Team (1981, 1983, 1986, 1989, 1995, 1999)
Norris Trophy: (1987, 1988, 1990, 1991, 1994)

being named to the 1st and 2nd all-star team 19 times is insane, his longevity is practically unmatched.

Lidstrom is coming close in terms of longevity, but he doesn't have nearly as much competition as Bourque did, and Potvin just doesn't have the longevity to match Bourque's career
