And even in more recent years, Visnovsky, who was a 50 point player in L.A., gave Anaheim another 50 points in '10/11 for another example.
Maybe not as impressive as the names on the top of Fedorov's list, but I'm willing to bet they figured into the scoring of Anaheim's first lines over the years as much as (or more than?) names like Coffey and Lidstrom figured into Fedorov's line's scoring during the '90s. And the entire list beats whoever you can find behind Fedorov over most of the last 7 seasons of his career.
