Can someone please answer a question I've long had?
Comparing Alexander Maltsev to Valeri Kharlamov, which one would you consider the more skilled player, and why? This is distinct from better player, since I think most believe that Kharlamov was a better player. But who was more skilled, and what specific strengths did each man have?
PM me, if possible.
Kharlamov was in a different league, no matter how you slice it. He was arguably the best soviet player of all time. Maltsev was just one of the soviet stars with a lot of comparables.
