My top five (in order)

1 – Mike Bossy
2 – Mark Messier
3 – Peter Stastny
4 – Paul Coffey
5 – Jari Kurri

An honourable mention goes to Bryan Trottier, who was an outstanding two way center, especially early in the decade.

Regarding Kurri – his point totals were obviously aided by playing with Gretzky. However he would have been an all-star on most other teams, though probably not as often. An under-rated aspect of Kurri’s game was his attention to the defensive aspect. He wasn’t a power forward obviously, but like Trottier, very responsible defensively.
