LOL, totally forgot Bure.

As for Kovalev, he has over 1000 points in the NHL. Don't let your subjectivity skew the facts. He's one of the greats. Not to mention, one of the most skilled players to ever play the game. Now, the work ethic and dedication may be questionable, but based on pure skill he's off the charts.

As for Mogilny, the difference between him and Bure isn't astronomical. Over his NHL career, Bure averaged roughly 1.10 PPG, Mogilny 1.04. Let's not forget Mogilny's 76 goal season - more than Bure ever scored in one season. Now, I'm not saying Mogilny is better than Bure, but let's not underrate Mogilny here. He IS one of the greats.
