To be fair both Carbonneau and Provost get a little bit of love for the HHOF too so they aren't altogether that far behind Gainey. I guess he gets the nod for being sort of the standard. Not to mention he beat out Lafleur for the Conn Smythe trophy once, as much as I love Carbonneau no one thought he should beat Patrick Roy.
