I agree. Dat's commitment to play both ends of the ice is rare for Russian forwards which got him a lot of good attention that he deserved but he never quite cracked the top 10 list in my opinion. Also people love to rank these players based on how they were at the peak of their careers instead of their most recent performance. Lastly people also put how entertaining a player is ahead of how effective they are.
