The list has zero credibility. It's completely 80's-centric, yet at the same time lacks the third-best defenseman from the 80s.
Everyone on the list except Orr, Shore, and Harvey played more than 50% of their career after 1980. Yet only two played 50% of their career after 1994. Seven of the defensemen on the list played in the 80s, leaving Orr, Harvey, Shore, and Lidstrom as the exceptions.
Based on the inclusions, you would think that Bourque, Coffey, Chelios, and Mark Howe (not included on the list) would be at the head of the class. Since the 80s are all that appear to matter.
