On defense you'd have to say Orr, followed very, I mean very closely by Harvey. After that Robinson and Potvin round out the top 4. Harvye always gets lost in the mix of best d-men ever let alone most complete. If Orr had never been born Harvey would be #1 of all time.
Shore and his 4 Hart Trophies migt have something to say aboout that. Only Gretzky & Howe have more.
First, Butch Goring deserves some love in this category. An exceptional two-way player, who was invaluable to the Isles dynasty. Secondly Ted Lindsay, while not brilliant in his own zone could fight, score and pass.
Secondly, I've been lenient so far, but any flaming/trolling/personnal attacks that appear after my post in this or any thread on this board will result in points if appropriate.
