Thats pretty deep for a 6 team league.

30s (not as deep but still pretty good)

Prime Eddie Shore
Prime D/F Clapper/Siebert
Prime Seibert
Prime Goodfellow
Prime Hollett
Prime King Clancy

70s

Prime Brad Park
Prime Bobby Orr
Prime Denis Potvin (though his prime should also be count in the 80s)
Prime Börje Salming (same as potvin)
Prime Lapointe
Prime Savard
Prime Robinson
Prime Stackhouse

Edit: Might have missed someone, I dont know.
I don't think that 70s quite stacks up. Like you said, Potvin and Salming really belong in the 80s. Robinson and Orr hardly overlap. Obviously Park and Robinson are top-20 all time, but Lapointe and Savard (IMO) are a lot more similar to a Niedermayer/Rob Blake kind of legacy.

From my understanding, Harvey is similar to Lidstrom in terms of his competition. Other than Kelly, who else was challenging him?

Bourque was competing with another top-6 guy in Potvin, as well as Robinson and Chelios. Coffey is probably not top-15 on many all-time lists, but he is the greatest offensive defenseman next to Orr.
