No need to be sarcastic. Bourque has the longevity and it's perfectly reasonable to rank him higher, but my point is that he wasn't in a different league than Fetisov when both were in their prime, both looked like equals and Fetisov might even has the higher peak. In that sense it's debatable, unlike Fetisov vs Gretzky/Lemieux, who were both in another league.

That's not the point of the ranking!
