I can't believe noone's got anything to say about that, imo he's not even close.

I'd say Sittler or McDonald, and if I had to pick a euro it would Salming, not Mats Sundin. Modern day I'd put Wendyl ahead of Mats. Oldtimers would probably pick someone who actually won a Cup there.

Cal - Fleury. Lanny wasn't there for that long.

Edm - Wayne. For people less familiar with the team it's only between Wayne and Mark, Lowe wasn't nearly as high profile a player, and you have to go with the guy responsible for the 400 goal seasons. That's what brought about the term "Oilers hockey", and it doesn't mean "a guy who will either score on you or rip your head off", it just means offensively creative hockey with an up tempo forecheck. Oilers hockey is Wayne's gift to Edmonton and the rest of the hockey world.
