Kharlamov, Firsov, and Makarov are the only forwards to have a case as the top Soviet forward. But everyone who watched them play extensively seems to agree that Kharlamov was #1, so I have to go with that.

And do all Canadiens fans like Maurice Richard as the best Canadien? I definitely think that some like Beliveau or Harvey, no? I mean, the young ones would pick Richard, but what of those who watched all 3?
I think Habs fans are split between Beliveau, Richard & Harvey which helps Bobby Hull to slip into 5th place where he rightfully belongs.
