my answer to that question would have been fleury, but i can see the argument for carbonneau. the other two guys took the easy way out and went with housley. mike johnson's argument that when you're top four all time in defenseman points, it doesn't matter if you couldn't play defense or win.

well, the interesting thing to me is carbonneau was just as much of an elite specialist as housley was. top five defensive forward of all time (and housley was only arguably top five offensively). the difference being contribution to winning teams. carbo over housley all day, every day.
