Let's go with Russians in the NHL basing it on only NHL-era achievements. Meaning, we can still factor in international play if necessary but it must be within the context of their NHL careers (i.e. 1998 Olympics).
I'd hypothesize it probably looks close to this:
1. Sergei Fedorov (Hart trophy, 2 Selke's, 1st team AS, two top-10 point finishes, multi-position player, major piece to 3 Cup wins and another runner-up finish, highest scoring Russian in NHL history, represented himself well in the first best-on-best olympics (silver), a peak that rivals Forsberg, left you wanting a tiny bit more after teasing us with that 1994 season that was one of the finest seasons in NHL history. Noted defensive force, so much so that he was moved to defense both later in his career and at times in his prime. All situation player. A mortal lock for the HHOF).
2. Alexander Ovechkin (2x Hart Trophy, 5x 1st team AS, 2nd team AS, five top-10 point finishes (4x top-3!), six top-5 goal finishes (led league twice), fine playoff player though limited team success, his "worst" seasons are still elite or near-elite. If his body can withstand his rather reckless style of play, he has a shot to take on Gretzky's 894 goals record and even if he doesn't break it, being discussed for such a thing in a fairly low scoring era is impressive. Likely HHOFer even if he retired today).
3. Evgeni Malkin (Hart Trophy, Conn Smythe Trophy, 3x 1st AS (at center), three top-2 point finishes (led league twice), still maturing as a player and may have turned the corner with his domiant 2012 performance. Another dominant playoff run or two (especially one that culminates with a Cup) would really help to cement his playoff legacy. Sort of like Fedorov, you get the sense that sometimes Malkin is holding back a little in certain instances - though less often than Fedorov. On pace to have a rock-solid HHOF career if he isn't already there - which he likely is).
4. Pavel Bure (1st AS, 2x 2nd AS, four top-10 point finishes, five top-5 goal finishes (led the league 3 times), remarkable success with losers (like scoring 29.5% of the team's goals in 2001, 46% of their total offense (59 goals and 92 points on 200 GF; second place at 14 goals and 37 points). Did really well with the 1994 Canucks, leading their charge offensively to being a runner-up. Injury-riddled career. Did make the HHOF, but one wonders if he would have gotten there sooner (ignoring injury) had he properly finished off the Rangers in game 4 and the Czechs in the Gold Medal game, but it's immaterial now I suppose. As his teams got worse, so did his cherry picking).
5. Ilya Kovalchuk (1st AS, 2nd AS, five top-10 point finishes, eight top-10 goal finishes (led the league once), noted marksman. Like Bure, was saddled with a disastrous team for much of his career. Only won one playoff game in his first nine seasons. Finally got a chance with a decent team and went to the Finals, leading the playoffs in goals. Has opportunity to become a 5x Russian Olympian at this pace. Along with Ovechkin, one of the finest goal-scorers of his era. Like Ovechkin, not known for his defensive exploits, though he has the hockey sense to play PK and does - better than his resume would indicate also. Lost a year to the lockout, suffered through the C&G Era to start his career and still is looking like a certain 600, or even 700-goal scorer. A mortal lock for the HHOF).
HM (in no order): Sergei Zubov, Sergei Gonchar, Alexei Kovalev, Alexander Mogilny, Vladimir Konstantinov
