1- Gretzky
2- Orr/Lemieux
4- Howe
5- Beliveau
6- Jagr
7- Hull
8- Richard
9- Bourque
10- Lidstrom

Lidstrom ahead of Harvey because of longevity and comparable accomplishments against players from all over the world (I guess the same could be said for Bourque, who I also have ahead of Harvey despite that not being standard). Not set in stone though, these three are almost interchangeable.

Howe behind Lemieux because he only had Lemieux-esque dominance over the league for a handful of years. Lemieux had no peer pretty much from his sophomore season until he decided to quit. Then he came back and once again produced like a god. Even though he missed a lot of games, he isn't a question mark, he played enough to demonstrate exactly what kind of supernatural talent he was, so I don't care about his lack of longevity.
