The top ten by itself is forward-heavy perhaps, with seven of the eight listed forwards. But that group has such a slim margin from 5th (Yzerman) to 15th (Roy) that re-arranging them based on positional distribution wouldn't necessarily be that far "out of order". Using my provided 15, you'd get something like the following for a top-12 (since there are only 4 defensemen); I've broken it up into 3-2-1 units and ordered them based on how my original list was.

1. Howe
2. Gretzky
3. Lemieux
4. Orr
5. Hasek
6. Lidstrom
7. Yzerman
8. Hull
9. Beliveau
10. Harvey
11. Bourque
12. Plante

This list pushes Jagr all the way down to 13th.
