Yeah what about Bill Cowley not making the top 70, wouldnt you agree that is underrating him. He has 2 hart trophies, 5 all star teams at center, and eight top 10 finishes. However, his accomplishments are going to be dismissed because he played too long ago? Peter Forsberg and Jari Kurri are not more accomplished hockey players than Bill Cowley no matter how anyone looks at it, some modern players are getting overrated.

Some people will say oh he played during the war. But that still doesnt change the fact that Doug Bentley, Lach, Blake, Richard, Teeder Kennedy and Bill Mosienko were all in the league during his prime. Bill Cowley got shafted because of post world war 2 bias. Almost all of the guys the dominant players from the 30's and 40s get ranked lower except Morenz, Cook and Shore.
