Hard to say but I doubt that he would seriously defend all of his choices after some 2nd thought.
I do think we should at least consider the possibility that he didn't expect this list to be presented as Scotty Bowman's Definitive List of Greatest Players. Quite often publications put together projects like this which are misunderstood by the participants, or not taken seriously. Then all of a sudden you've got people calling him on the floor for ranking Savard over Robinson when he may very well have not even done it intentionally.
I'd really like to give Bowman the benefit of the doubt and believe he wrote this list in between lunch and tee time, viewing it as a fun little survey rather than a serious claim about hockey history.
