Each player has his record agasitn his peers over teh elngth of his career and his peak and prime as well.

Both are part of the picture but anyone being 2nd in points over the length of his career is simply quite outstanding given his overall defense being pretty good too.

On the whole you can make a pretty decent case for him over Vaseliev or Savard right?
Hey I like Zubov, I always thought he was better offensively than Lidstrom was but whether I can make a case for him over Vaseliev or Savard...
Savard I would say a hard no to, he was a pretty impressive D-man. Vaseliev I'm more open to entertaining arguments as his sample size for playing against the best, or at a fair amount of the best is pretty limited.

And also in regards to Zubov, he was a lot better defensively later in his career but I would hardly call him a stalwart in that department and was very certainly a very, very poor man's shut down guy.
