Top 50 Russian -All Time

Top 50 Russian Players -All Time

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Who do you think are the top russian players of All Time?

They can come from any era. Goalies Forwards or defence.
They can be NHL'ers current or retired.
They can be retired WHA players.
They can come from any european elite league.
They can come from red army moscow dynamo etc
They could had played internationally with russia in various hockey tournaments e.g. Olympics, World Championships, Spengler Cup, World Juniors, Canada Cup or World Cup.

Players choosen for the top 50 by you do not have to be in order.

You guys are the experts enlighten me Thanks

I'm not very well-versed in Russian players pre-1990, so you'll have to forgive the question if it's ridiculous.

Where would the members of the Wings' Russian 5 rank? I know Fedorov and Larionov would probably be the highest. Just wondering.

Yes, I forgot Bobrov. Also guys like Venyamin Alexandrov, Alexander Ragulin, Alexander Almetov, Konstantin Loktev, Boris Mayorov, Yuri Lyapkin, Vitali Davydov, Viktor Konovalenko and Viktor Kuzkin could be added there.

As for Yashin and Zhitnik, I think they belong.

I went to his hockey camp for a week, 3 years ago. Hes a really nice guy. Though he made my life a living hell when ever I made a mistake on the ice.

talent-skills skating shot offense defense

Some of the players from the 50's should be there. Sologubov, Guryshev, Babich, Shuvalov and Tregubov are definetely top 50.

It's top 50, not top 500.


As for Balderis, it says "Russian players", not "USSR players". Why not Irbe among the top Russian goalies while you're at it ?

A couple of active players that I think should also get consideration:

Pavel Datsyuk and Andrei Markov.

How do Russian members feel about Maxim Sushinsky? He's been solid in Russian league for many years.

Yakushev 72

Just a few other names to consider: Aleksandr Golikov, Aleksandr Skvortsov, Mikhail Varnakov, and Viktor Tjumenev were consistently good on national and club teams.
