Remember, part of the question was that you would have 2012 knowledge back in 1971. As great as Lafleur was, he really only had 6 peak years. He was slow to go at first, and started to get injured later on. Robinson was never as good as Lafleur during his best years (damn close), but he played at a high level for a lot longer.

Don't know as much about Dionne. I think I saw him live only once. He looked really good, but not electric like Lafleur at his best. FYI, I saw Lafleur and Robinson play dozens of times during the 70's.
