That's the statistical annalysis I used. More specifically, it was Career Normalized Production Leaders. But I overlooked the Hall of Fame Debate, Part II, which ranks Clarke at #14 among players currently in the Hockey Hall of Fame.

A quick illustration:

Richard won no major awards

Only three players in NHL history have more than Clarke's 3 Hart Trophies.
That is a fine point. The Harts are worth a lot. I would like to know what other illustrations you might offer. If it's All-Star Teams, both were named to four end-of-season teams. However, Clarke was named to two First All-Star Teams, and Henri Richard was named to only one. That gives the edge to Clarke. Stanley Cups might be another illustration, which would be a staggering victory for Canadiens great.

But I think you have helped to turn me on this debate.

Here is the controversial ESPN Top 100 NHL Players:
32. Marcel Dionne

37. Henri Richard

41. Bob Clarke

This is the list that has Forsberg as the 17th best NHL player of all-time.
