Positive impact with the organization should count for something. Forsberg is obviously the best Swede to play for Philly, but I have no problem with the artcile's selection of Renberg. As for Americans, Howe would be my choice, followed by LeClair.

For the Czechs, there haven't been many greats donning orange and black, so Jagr's kind of a default pick. Ask again in a few years and it would likely be Jake.
Well yeah, impact on the actual organization should matter, but it looks like in this instance that is not what impacted the decision. If we are talking about impact on the organization that changes a lot of things for a lot of teams.
