Having seen all play in their primes I would argue for Robinson being in a larger conversation about the best *overall* defenseman of all time.
BTW I brought up Serge, but I did not mean to say he was 'better' than Larry. It's like comparing Gold to Platinum...both are perfect. I just thought Serge should not be left out of the conversation...
