Zubov was amazing. His skill level was out of this world. Since Hull didn't play for the Stars in his prime, I can say Zubov is the best player this franchise has had. Lehtinen is a close second.
Well Bobby Orr was easily the best at it. You can debate the others after that but the next best is probably Coffey. Lidstrom has to be the best defenseman to come in to the league since Ray Bourque in '79. No others since would rank quite as high. Orr, Bourque, and Potvin are my top 3 of all time. After them in no order you could throw in Harvey, Robinson, and Lidstrom. People say Shore but I never like ranking pre-50s.

I will always say Modano is the greatest player we've had, but I could see an argument for Zubie. And just the fact that he was so underappreciated makes you love him even more.
