Current thinking:

21. Mark Messier - explained above
22. Jaromir Jagr - best offensive player left by a good margin. No intangibles, but at some point, the offense overwhelms it
23. Valeri Kharlamov - best Russian ever by wide opinon. Voted Soviet MVP of the 70s.
24. Edouard "Newsy" Lalonde - Best pre Morenz NHLer by a good margin.
25. Fred "Cyclone" Taylor - slightly softer than Lalonde?
26. Mike Bossy - seems slightly more important to the Islander's dynasty than Trottier
27. Larry Robinson - the prototype of a dman who can hit and move the puck.
28. Bobby Clarke - I flip flop between him and Trottier
29. Bryan Trottier - I flip flop between him and Clarke
30. Viacheslav Fetisov - the 9th best dman ever, and a good margin over #10
31. Terry Sawchuk - I wouldn't mind seeing him go up now, but I still have questions. I could raise him a few more spots by the end.
32. Joe Sakic - less consistantly dominant at his position than his contemporary Brodeur, even accounting for competition
33. Steve Yzerman - below Sakic
34. Ted Lindsay - strongly considering flipping him and Yzerman.
35. Glenn Hall - below Sawchuk and no better than 1 or 2 goalies not yet listed
