I don't think that it does.

I would not even compare Rocket Richard and Mike Bossy. Who was better? I have no idea other than they are two of the greatest goal scorers in the history of the game.

Richard, Beliveau and Lafleur's places in NHL history are secure and I respect what each player accomplished, without the need to place them on a subjective list.
Nice post.
