Personally think if Dionne played on a team with coaching that made him more of a team player, his totals would drop a bit, but his success would have gone up. I still remember when a reporter asked him "of your 700 goals, how many would you give up for a Stanley cup?", and he replied "probably none of them". The reporter was speechless.
Describes Marcel Dionne very well. The only missing question was "How many playoff appearances would Dionne give up to score 900 regular season goals?"

Dionne went to LA, a well coached defensive team after the 1974-75 season and he never bought in.
