This is from a recent blog post at the Edmonton Journal where the author rewatched the Summit Series and counted scoring chances created by and caused by players. This article is called "Phil Esposito was the Mario Lemieux of 72. Bruins ace was a scoring chance machine for Team Canada," and focused on the first 4 games.

Here's an blog post that he made after doing this for all 8 games:

Thanks to overpass who sent me these articles after I drafted Espo in the recent ATD.

I would probably rank Jagr over Espo because of longevity as a top player, but I think it's awfully close.
wow bravo to the writer who broke that down. forget stats...that's the proper way to break down historic players if there is video available...
