As it stands right now, on March 27th, 2013?

Without further revision, it is these players who played all or part of their career post-1980 ranked above Fedorov:
Gretzky, Lemieux, Yzerman, Hasek, Jagr, Lidstrom, Bourque, Roy, Sakic, Fetisov, Potvin, Robinson, Bossy, Clarke, Trottier, Messier, Chelios, Park.
No shame in being behind those guys but I think there can be a case for Fedorov over the 2 in bold and maybe Fetisov too but it's hard comparing different positions.

The first few post-1980 players behind Fedorov are:
Forsberg, Makarov, Lafleur, Kurri, Coffey, Dionne, Ovechkin, Crosby, Larionov
Here it gets really tricky, Crosby and AO are still too young in their careers and I'm not a huge Coffey fan but all of the other guys have some really strong resumes.


I personally have Forsberg and Feds really close somewhere in the top 20 all time for Centers and both ahead of Clarke.
