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.
I say Zubov because of the wealth of talent that's in the league now and when he was in. I mean honestly... There wasn't as much saturation when Bobby played. He revolutionized the position! Zubie did it all in a strong, strong league.
