Yeah, that's a pretty horrible list.
I'm not even going to touch the low-hanging fruit here. On what logical basis could he rank Chelios behind MacInnis? Where could he possibly get the idea that Harvey didn't set up many goals (other than not knowing how to interpret his stats)? In what league does a defensive defenseman (Robinson, apparently) score 85 points? How is it even possible to have Shore at #4, Stevens at #11 and Kelly not on the list?
Pretty straightforward case of ranking players based on surface impressions of their trophy and stat counts.
Edit: and a typical case of "I've heard of these 3 guys who played before I was born, so no need to pretend I care about the rest of hockey history".
