    Bure in his short time

    Fedorov in the long haul

    similar to the hasek\roy debate. Roy is better during the long span, but Hasek had him beat during his prime.

    I don't think Bure's prime was any better than Sergei's. Both have 2 100+ point seasons. Bure has three other 90+ pts seasons and Fedorov has 3 other 80+ point seasons. Then Sergei's longer career kicks in not to mention Fedorov's defensive presence. Bure led the league in goals a couple times. Fedorov popped in 100 points and won the Selke the same year a couple times.

    Fedorov has had the best NHL career of any Russian player ever, how he stacks up with guys who spent the bulk of their careers in the CCCP is hard to measure.

    I said Federov, because I don't remember Kharlamov, and most of what I saw of Fetisov was past his prime. Bure was more exciting, but overall, I think Federov has been the better of the two..

    Okay Bure shouldnt be winning this one. Kharlamov is who I took. I'll put Fedorov over Bure. My list on that one at least goes like this: Kharlamov, Fetisov, Fedorov, Bure.

    Two horse race between Bure and Fedorov. Feds wins it in my book for being a complete player.

    Wow, I can't believe Bure is winning this. IMO he is the worst out of all four. I picked Kharlamov. It's close to between him and Fetisov.

    Judging just on NHL careers Fedorov is better than Bure.

    Bure was one of the most exciting players in his prime.

    Exciting doesn't mean best. Fedorov is one of the most complete players the game has ever seen. Three cups, two Selke's, a Hart, and a Pearson. The guy dominates all three zones. Kharlamov may have been better, but from what I saw in the Summit Series, he wasn't as good as Fedorov at his best.

    Of the following forwards I've seen, from best to worst:

    Fedorov
    Bure
    Mogilny
    Kharlamov
    Yakushev
    Mihailov
    Petrov

    But the greatest player (as in most ahead of his time) on my list is Kharlamov.

    Kharlamov would have only been about 23 or 24 during the Summit Series so you can't really say he was in his prime. The guy dominated against guys with much more experience than him.

    Not that I have a point, but so did Fedorov in 1993-94...at the age of 23/24. ;)

    Yeah, I'd have liked to have seen that name on the list, too. Of those available, I thought Kharlamov was a slight favorite over Fedorov.

    I guess I should have been more clear, sorry. I meant against a team like the one Canada put together for the Summit Series.
