6. Larry Robinson.

There remains five selections to be made. I would think that Jean Beliveau; Maurice richard; Doug Harvey and Guy Lafleur would qualify for four of the remaining spots...maybe not in that order.

That leaves one opening:

So, would that be :
a.) Henri Richard 11 Stanley Cups , most ever
b.) Yvan Cournoyer 10 Stanley Cups and Team Canada 1972
c.) Guy Lapointe, the odd man out of the Big 3?
d.) Frank Mahovlich most points by a left winger prior to Steve Shutt
e.) Steve Shutt , most points by a left winger and a 60 goal season
f.) Pierre Larouche, 50 goal scorer
g.) Peter Mahovlich, over 100 points, Team Canada 72 & 76
h.) Guy Carbooneau-maybe the best defensive forward of his time
i) Denis Savard

Now, the column suggests that the 10 selections totaled 71 Stanley Cups...I am thinking Hneri Richard makes the list.

Henri Richard will likely be on the list, but Howie Morenz should be.

I'd also put Newsy Lalonde, Aurel Joliat, and Jacques Lemaire ahead of most of the guys you listed.
