That's a portfolio for a top 50 player who should have been voted in a long time ago.
14. Sergei Makarov: An interesting case. Unlike the other Soviet greats, we got to see Makarov in the show. The problem is, it was past his prime. He won the Calder Trophy in 1990 (and caused the league to change the rule on Calder eligibility in the process). He gets an incomplete for his NHL playoff record. A dynamic offensive force. His World Championship and Olympic accomplishments do nothing for me, but it is worth noting he was an all-star at the 84 Canada Cup.
Funny, cause, for me, this is about right for Moore. He was great in the dynasty, but his career outside those 5 years is mediocre as all get out.
Conversely, I think it is a damn shame Makarov is outside the top 50.
