In my view, how can the greatest player in NHL history not be considered the greatest player in Kings history?
So by that line of thinking, Wayne Gretzky is a greater St. Louis Blue than Brett Hull?

If you look at career versus career, Gretzky is greater than anyone who wore a Kings sweater. If you look at just the time he spent as a King versus the time others have spent as a King, not nearly as clear cut.

Also, I don't view Gretzky as the greatest player in NHL history, even though he's my favorite all-time player. I'd put him at third, behind Mario Lemieux and Bobby Orr (haven't decided whose first or second though).
