Honestly, I'd take out a whole lot of pre-1950 players. They are simply not as good as those who came later (for purely objective reasons). To give equal share of the "Best Of" list to all eras is to admit that hockey has not made any progress over the past century, which, to me, is just wrong.
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?
Well, basically Russia/USSR should be just a couple of notches below Canada. In the Realm of the Relics Canada has the undisputed advantage. Then we'd have (roughly) 15 for Russia, 20 for Canada, 15 for Canadian relics, and 20 for the rest of the world... that sounds about right.
