No disrespect but Gretzky is in a class by himself. Messier is considered one of the best that ever played. Coffey broke a few of Orr's records.

Love Weight but he is a class below those 3.

You don't have to be old enough to have watched them to realize that the above three players are not only considered the best Oilers but considered among the best to ever play the game.

yeah, I'd pick:

1. Gretz
2. Mess (A distant second)
3. Coffey

a mod should take every name from the first 2 pages and add a poll.
We actually did something like this a few years ago. I ran a series of threads which asked posters to vote for the top 50 Oilers of all time.

http://hfboards.com/showthread.php?t=599526 if you're interested in seeing the final list. Kurri won third place quite handily over Paul Coffee at the time. It would be interesting to see how this list would change almost 3 years later. I think at least a few guys would fall a bit.

If it is based on all the players we had in their prime, Gretzky and Messier are locks.

The next down the list can very well be Chris Pronger. Pronger >> Coffey.

If you want someone who dominates the blue line and be a force all over the ice, it has to be pronger.

I take Kurri over Coffey, but that's just me.

Coffey was the far better defenceman and its not even close!

Yeah I would argue it is close but Coffey broke a couple of records of the great dman of all time.

That puts Coffey over Kurri for me.

1st Gretz


2nd Messier

3rd Anderson HM - Kurri, Coffey

I think that Gretz (mostly) and Mess are responsible for some of the greatness that other Oilers achieved, I think that Anderson would have been clutch wherever he played in his prime.
