Not that Makarov wasn't great, but Krutov is severely underrated.
Krutov might be under rated in terms of his production on the KLM line but that's about it.

There is a lot of evidence that Krutov was the weak link of that unit as an individual and only had success due to the structure and nature of the Russian systems.

Of all the players considered as in the top 50 of their positions or top 150-200 top forwards of all time, Krutov is one of the last players I would want to build a team around and most would have problems disagreeing with that comment I would think.
