I think Olmstead's raw stats are inflated from playing with Beliveau, but he is the only one of these guys inducted into the HHOF by people who watched him play. (Bauer and Dumart - Milt Schmidt's linemates - were veteran's committee picks)
From memory, Olmstead is in my top-50. None of Bauer or Dumart are in my top-60 -- I suspect I'll have a hard time leaving Dumart out of my top-80 and an even harder time getting Bauer in. Was Bauer ever a Top-4 RW for anything else than 1/year stretches ?

Bryan Hextall... Had him. Above Olmstead. Just a damn short prime though.
