I'd imagine it would have to be built on the idea of "Espo's stats are the rsult of Orr" combined with the whole "Espo only played half of the rink".

Or basically, to compare to modern HF arguments... "Orr was Tavares on defense, and Espo was Matt Moulson at center"

Personally, I'd put Fedorov a fair bit behind each (I think the "Espo is a product" argument is given far too much credit). I rank Esposito 7th and Clarke 9th among centers, with Fedorov 12th.
