Plus hfboards is an English language based site so obviously Russian/European members are in the minority. And the top 70 list is still excellent even if it does short-change non-NHL players a bit.
That top 70 does include Kharlemov (33), Fetisov (35), Tretiak (44), Makarov (61) and Mikhailov (68).
