And Makarov had Krutov and Larionov, I don't think it's that much worse, if at all. But on defense, Fetisov-Kasatonov were the big advantages that Kharlamov didn't have. Vasiliev-Gusev/Lutchenko wasn't quite up there.

But like I said, IMO Makarov was slightly better than Kharlamov - no matter the 'different era' or anything - and it would be interesting to see a comprehensive analysis on the subject.
