9. Arturs Irbe
10. Erich Khunhackl

After all, what list would be complete without the greatest Latvian ever (put down the broken bottle Sandis, you're still #2) in the top 10?
Selšnne over Kurri?

Anyway, I think for instance the 1976 Canada Cup all-star selections followed this, er, mindset (guys like Maltsev and especially Salming were no doubt far and away the best players on their team [and Milan Novy played very well too], but no room for Gilbert Perreault and/or Denis Potvin? C'mon.)
