I don't quite understand why Kharlamov is often the default top Russian. There seems to be a big differene between the legend and his actual accomplishments.
He was the first Russian great, and was a symbol of the rise of USSR hockey. Similar to how the Rocket is often considered the greatest Hab ever because he symbolized the French-Canadian fight against discrimination in the 1960s, even though Beliveau and Harvey were probably better players.
