I didn't see Beliveau play. but, AFAIC, 68 is the 3rd best player i have ever seen, behind you know who (well, i did see Orr and Howe, but not enough). And he may be entering the club of other 2.
Hull is ahead of Espo by a number of spots so I don't get the comparison. Hull was a very important player; Espo just a very good player. Also, what's changed in the past 6 months that warrants Jagr's inclusion in the top 7?
