One-Year Players

Can you guys come up with some instances of a player who played for a certain team for just one season, but was very good for that one year with that one team?

Let me give you an example to start: Gerber with Carolina.

Ray Bourque played just one full season in Colorado. He was servicible.

Gretzky in St Louis maybe. Lafleur with the Rangers.

Gretzky with the Blues doesn't count- that was half a season.

Jon Casey played one season (1993-94) with the Boston Bruins as their #1 goaltender and put up decent numbers. I never really understood why the Bruins didn't keep him.

Hextall put up respectable numbers with the Isles during the regular season. Sure, he sucked in the playoffs, but it might be difficult to lump the sweep solely on him. The Rangers totally outmatched the Islanders.

fair enough, but when he tried to catch a puck that was over his head and it went into the net ( from the blue line ) that series was OVER.

The two best were probably Lionel Conacher and Chris Pronger.

In his one season in Chicago, Conacher was a first team all-star, Hart Trophy runner-up, and Stanley Cup champion.

In Edmonton, Pronger had a season worthy of Norris consideration, and came within a game of the Stanley Cup, and quite possibly the Conn Smythe as well.

I think Vincent Damphousse has to be there...


The Leafs traded him to Edmonton in 1991-92.

80 games; 38 goals - 51 assists - 89 points (14pts in 16playoffs games)

Finish first of his team in scoring that year ahead of good players like Joe Murphy, Craig Simpson, Scott Mellanby and Bernie Nicholls.
