Resumes are not everything. IMHO Red Kelly is superior defensively to Bob Gainey. But the thing is Kelly was awesome offensively too, so it is easy to overlook his defensive play. If he was asked to play purely defensive role I am fairly certain he would do a better job than Gainey or Provost. Just my 0.02$ though.
