The 2002 Wings? Or the 2002 Wings and Avs? Because if we're comparing the whole series, and adding up the Isles and Oil, it seems like the Avs should be in there too.

Gretzky>Yzerman
Trottier<Sakic
Messier>Forsberg
Sutter<Fedorov
Bossy>Hull
Kurri>Shanahan
Anderson<Robitaille
Gillies<Datsyuk
Tonelli<Larionov

Coffey<Lidstrom
Potvin>Chelios
Huddy<Blake
Lowe<Duchesne

Smith<Hasek
Moog<Roy

Outside of 1983 having Gretzky, this looks pretty favorable to the 2002 series when you match up prime v. prime.

Gretzky>Yzerman
Trottier>Fedorov
Messier>Larionov
Sutter<Datsyuk
Bossy>Hull
Kurri>Shanahan
Anderson<Robitaille
Gillies>Draper
Tonelli>Holmstrom

Coffey<Lidstrom
Potvin>Chelios
Huddy<Duchesne
Lowe>Olausson

Smith<Hasek
Moog>Legace

It favors the 1983 series more if you only use the Wings roster.
