I have that magazine.
Man, their lists are allllll over the place. Bowman in particular seems to judge a lot of popular players much lower than the others.
I think he had Gretzky 5th or 7th.. something like that..
Then again I think every list I looked at had at least one "what the hell is your reasoning behind this guy being here?" moment hahaha
Admittedly I'm sure if I made a list it would be difficult and people would say the same thing about mine.
