I didn't supply it as a "calibration". It's just interesting that a panel of "experts" sees it basically just as close as we do, and the order was interesting.

As for the Espo thing, realize that it still would have taken three more 1st place votes to move him above Messier (Greg goes on to say he still would have put Espo after Messier anyway), so the difference of one voter moving to Espo likely simply results in a bit more distance between him and Yzerman/Trottier/Sakic as opposed to a drastic re-ordering.
