    No. Hasek, Fetisov, and Lidstrom.

    I think it's a 3 way tie between Jagr, Hasek, and Lidstrom.

    Counting NHLers only, it's Hasek, then Jagr/Lidstrom in a dead heat.

    Interesting.... Jagr missed 4 season from the NHL yet still managed to be 2nd all time in points.. 4 years straigh Art Ross ... for Lidstrom to be above Jagr he would have to rate near or same level as Bobby Orr

    It goes without saying that Lidstrom is the 2nd best dman behind Orr.

    No it doesn't.

    Bourque, Harvey, Shore, even Potvin all have extremely strong claims for it.

    F - Jagr
    D - Lidstrom
    G - Hasek

    and the order can be debated. For me it's Jagr, Hasek, Lidstrom but I'm okay with any order another individual sees them in.

    I have no idea how anyone can not say Hasek. He was the nearest comparable to the almost impossible saying of a "one man team"; and his accolades and numbers back it up.

    He's arguably the greatest player of all time especially playing the toughest position in his revolutionary goaltending method-- that no one else has ever come close to replicating again.

    On pure hockey ability I'd say Fetisov is the best.

    Hasek stole a few harts from Jagr.

    I absolutely love Jagr, one of my all-time favorite players, but I rank Lidstrom above him.
