Do some (or any) belong on the HOH project's top-60 (top 80 list) of all time?

THAT is the question.

(other than offensive-oriented Neighbor and Clarke, the former renowned for his stickwork the latter for his agitation).

Plus

Ted Kennedy, Milt Schmidt, Alex Delvecchio, Pavel Datsyuk plus others that most would consider as border line.

In the modern day NHL, I could see Clarke as the best 2 way forward ever. All time, it might have to be Frank Nighbor.

This. Although I would argue Forsberg slightly better than Clarke because his raw, offensive talent was definitely superior.

Forsberg was VERY average in his own end. Fedorov is a much better two-way forward. I rank him higher than Clarke and even Trottier.
