5. Evgeny Malkin
6. Vyacheslav Fetisov
7. Pavel Bure
8. Aleksandr Mogilny
9. Vladimir Krutov
10. Tie: Aleksei Kovalev/Aleksandr Maltsev

I gave Kharlamov the edge over Datsyuk because of his superior speed, balance and all-around skating ability. I left Ovechkin off because I thought that he fell short of the top 10 in skill, although I would definitely rank him as one of the 10 best Russian players of all-time.
How you guys always manage to forget Bobrov???

1. Vsevolod Bobrov

And Maltsev was waaay better than Kovalev can ever dream to be.
