As one of Kharlamov's biggest supporters and a guy who watched many many games he played in, I am laughing very very hard at your post.

Making statements like that and then questioning our credibility?

Kharlamov is in the Lafleur/Jagr/Bossy tier, not the Gretzky/Lemieux/Orr/Howe tier.

And I rank him much higher than most.

Many many people question whether or not Kharlamov is even the greatest Russian of all time, let along a top 5 all time player. I do agree he is the greatest Russian, but you should probably do a little research.

Start Here.
