Even extending it past Gretzky... we'll never see another Lemieux, Bure, Coffey or Orr (if you think he didn't cheat a lot you're sadly mistaken) again. Look at Ovy. The numbers he was putting up was insane but instead of building around him the Caps wanted him to change his game and become more of a team player. Well the Caps got what they wished for. Ovy gets blamed for everything while McPhee sits around twirling his neckerchief.
