Honorable mentions go to Trottier, Clarke, Gainey, Carbonneau, and Yzerman.
Clarke didn't have Lidstrom either. The greatest defensive players are great regardless of who they play/played with, they're catalysts, they cause their linemates to appear better defensively not the opposite. And had the Selke been around in in Clarke's peak he'd probably have multiple Hart/Selke seasons. Fedorov's season, while amazing also came when Gretzky was past his prime and Lemieux missed most of the season. Gilmour had a simlar season the year before, he just also had Lemieux scoring at a Godly rate to contend with.
