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.

Nothing against Kovalev and Mogilny, I'm big fans of both and I agree that they are two of the all-time greatest Russian players. I was just saying that Bure should be on your list ahead of them.
