he centers bondra to a retro rocket.

but then he coaches alex ovechkin, in the middle of a years-long funk, to 23 goals in 23 games and, yes, another rocket richard trophy.

has any other player been directly involved in great years by this many truly elite goal scorers? the closest i can think of is coffey, but after gretzky, kurri, and mario, were any of the other 50 goal scorers coffey helped truly elite in the way the ones listed above are?
Fedorov? 56 goals in 1993-94 and never again higher than 39. That wasn't just Coffey though, obviously, but he was involved.
