As for Patrick Roy, he lead the league in save% 4 times and was top 5 10 times. If that isn't dominance, then what is? The 3 playoff mvp's alone should be enough to consider him greater. Bobby Hull would easily trade his hardware for conn smythe's.
I guess all great goal scorers should be considered puck hogs then?
I wonder, did you actually watch Doug Harvey play?
Maybe the level of competition wasn't as great back then and it was easier to look better?
I'm guessing maybe it was since we have some excellent defensive Dmen to day like Duncan Keith and Glen Searbrooke playing on the same team.
Lidstrom isn't a bad Dman either.
