so I wonder if anybody has any such numbers for defencemen. something like most scoring race wins, top-3s, top-5s, top-10s? that would be interesting to see and would in my opinion give a much better knowledge about whom the greatest were.
Most of these guys were contemporaries because there was an influx of defenseman emulating Orr by the mid-70s until the 90s when things clamped down again.
