To me a lot of his all time ranking, and Shore's for that matter, is based on reputation and doesn't stand up to critical scrutiny IMO.

both were the best Dmen in their times but it wasn't as hard for them to be than the modern Dman IMO.
Except a Norris isn't just a Norris. If you ask me, Harvey was so far ahead of the league's other D-men for most, if not all of his 7 norris trophies, that 7 "average" norrises just wouldn't compare.
