Zhao Yun and Zhang Fei are definitely up there. Huang Zhong likely wins a spot for his victory as well. Ma Chao barely did anything for Liu Bei. Most of his career was as an independent warlord or subordinate of his father. Guan Yu possibly wins a spot, but he wasn't really amazing. There aren't a lot of choices though here, really...
Chen Shou did not like this man and therefore excluded him from being on the top 5 list this is mind boggling to me if you dissect his career he easily fits in and replaces Ma Chao hands down.
I am torn to making Chen Dao replace Wei Yan because Liu Bei used Chen as an aide and fought with Liu through YI Province campaign, Hanzhong, etc and given head of command of the famed "White eared unit" a detail that was used for personal protection for Liu Bei so entrusted this man with his life and in my opinion Chen was more then a bodyguard he was a tough as nails General, who was by Liu's side always.
