I didn't even bother to go through the rest of this list, but the ones in bold have me absolutely puzzled... there's really no justification for having Richard above Lemieux let alone Gretzky. Crosby ahead of Bourque? Roy way down at 36? Cam Neely in the top 50?! Dave Keon at 12!?!

I respect the man, but this is one of the worst lists I've personally ever seen.
complete with the obligatory massive overrating of niedermayer, who is roughly around the 34th best defenseman of all time.
