The argument for Gretz was that the Kings went from fourth-worst the year before to fourth-best in '89 after acquiring 99.
I don't agree with it, but that was the logic. I think the media probably got too wrapped up in the Gretzky comes LA storyline.
Weird year, though. Four guys break the 150 point barrier. Gretzky gets the Hart, Yzerman gets the Pearson, and the guy with 199 points goes home empty-handed?
