I would say Sundin was more of a speciment than Lemieux, but Lindros was tops.

Howe, the original power forward. Spent 4 decades as one of the best (and for much of the absolute best) and most feared players in the NHL. Simply unbelievable. Like a Lindros who knew how to keep his head up and was made of steel.

Edit: I guess Chara in a different way too. They say if any other player in the NHL used his stick they would break wrists. The strongest and tallest player in NHL history. Certainly would beat Howe in a fight, but in terms playing, Howe's speed, IQ, and coordination would make Chara look like a Pewee hockey player.
