I think the argument in regards of Ted Lindsay's Hart shares applies to Moore. If anything, Moore might just be the closer player, gamestyle wise, to Lindsay.
For the record, Peter Forsberg will probably be part of my Top-10. He'll just be below Moore by 3-4ish ranks.
I think we should take into consideration how other attempts at making a Top-100 turned out for Moore vs. Bathgate. Same thing (to a lesser extent...) for Henri Richard IMO.
