Winning the 2 Cups though where he was the man in both cases with some of the most dominant hockey ever played is the reason why he is ranked as high as 4.

To me, Lemieux should be ranked 3rd ahead of Howe but that is just me and that has already been discussed before.

The fact that Lemieux had a terrbile playoff record up until the back-to-back Cups might have helped to elevate him to "Immortal status.

Otherwise some would argue that Bobby Hull, Beliveau and Maurice Richard would have been more deserving of the number 4 spot.
