So yeah, I think when comparing Mogilny to Palffy you would have to say that Mogilny could and would enhance the success of a team to a better extent.
I think 1992-93 Mogilny was better than anything Palffy did, but how often did Almo come close to that level again?

I think the correct answer here is that Mogilny was better at his best, but Palffy was at his best more often.

It's easy to forget just how little help Palffy had most of the time. Check out the 2002-03 LA Kings:
