Kharlamov
Tretiak
Bure
Larionov (I value longevity, versatility, and hockey sense)
Mikhailov
Finally, we're getting somewhere.

Now, concerning those who aren't already on the list, who are they bumping off the top 70?

10 out of 70 is a minimum for Russian players, possibly more.
As previously mentioned, you really mean 10 of ~35 or fewer, depending on the time frame you consider Russia to have been on par with Canada.

So you're reserving 10 spots for Russia, and I assume 10 for Canada (if they were in fact equals) and that leaves 15 for the rest of the world? Do those proportions seem right to you?
