So you want to make an argument that the Original 6 was better than when Hull played, then Orr in the 70's, then Gretzky in the 80's to today where the level is extremely high due to training and the influx of more top level talents from an increase in the parts of the world that produce hockey players now?

I have no doubt that Harvey was the best Dman of his time but I doubt that he would be nearly as great in a later era and today he would be considered small in the NHL for a Dman.
