It's a wonder that the Oilers ever lost, given that they had two of the top seven centers of all-time, the 12th/13th-best RW, the 11th/12th-best defenseman ever, and the 25th-best goalie. And all but Fuhr are in HF's top 70. Detroit has Yzerman (13th C) and Lidstrom (6th D).

All rankings, except for Fuhr, were taken from HF's top 70.

Also... who ranked Lidstrom as the best of all-time?
