    I would add Cael Sanderson to your list.... 159-0 speaks for itself. Alexander Karelin was quite dominant as well.

    Some other names worth mentioning--- Deion Sanders, Carl Lewis, Elway, Muhammed Ali, Magic, Lawrence Taylor, Pele.

    And if we are talking sheer athleticism, LeBron might be at the top of that list one day.

    bobby orr was far more dominant than lemieux, roy or coffey. the guy could kill a full 2 minute penalty by himself with regularity. and +124 will never be equaled again.

I knew he had one on the ice.

    I think it helped that I wore an Islanders jersey-style shirt that night.
    I met Bossy once, about 12 years ago and I was a HUGE Bossy fan, but I felt he came across as a little ignorant, and not very talkative.

    Not only that, the guy changed the sport of Hockey forever. Before Orr it was unheard of for a defensemen to crash the net or even score that often. I think the guy gets overlooked so often because he did not play that long, but there is not a single person that has completly changed a sport like Orr.
    Dude, Iím a wrestler. Iím the best wrestler in MMA. Wrestling IS, was and always has been the most dominate form of mix martial art on the planet. Thatís all there is to it. We all know it, some people want to fight it, some people want doubt it but wresters rule the MMA world. -

    Bossy's achievement of 50+ goals per season is absolutely incredible. Pretty cool to know that him and I grew up in the same neighborhood in Laval, Quebec! Never met him though.
