The answer would be yes but I really like to separate goalies, Dmen and forwards because all 3 have vastly different impacts and control over their teams fortunes.

Goalies play the entire game and upwards of 80% plus of all total team minutes so they obviously can have a greater impact than Dmen who play usually over a 1/3 of the game and upwards of close to 30MPG.

Even top forwards usually play 5-7 MPG less than top Dmen on most
teams.

Even with all of that I would have Nick, Ray, Bobby and maybe even Denis all in my top 10 but like I said it really gets tricky if we include Goalies.
