Lemieux and Yzerman were both in after 88-89. Everything else was gravy. Lemieux for sure, and at worst Yzerman takes one more year.

In all honesty, with Gretzky I would say when the Oilers won the Cup in 1984.
Gretzky was in after 81-82. No ifs, ands, or buts.

Pronger after his 2006 Cup run, the one knock (other than injuries) people had on him was his ability to have a great playoff
Pronger was in after his 2000 season, which was his second Norris nomination and first win, as well as his Hart win. He also was top-four for the third straight season despite injury. At worst, he hits the Hall in 2004 when he gets his third nomination and fifth top-five ranking.
